IMPORTANT: This is an alpha release. Some features are not
complete and you will find bugs!
You must be running 2.0.1. Installation is straight-forward:
This version is a lot rougher than I would normally like to release,
even for an alpha, but the vagaries of my schedule over the next few weeks
means that it's better to push something out earlier rather than later.
Some of the core code is going to be rewritten but this at least gives
people the chance to give the underlying search engine a workout.
The search facility is at the same place (Tools|Find) although you will
find it's a tad quicker now :-) Search query syntax is described here
Very little functionality right now - the ability to restrict searches by date,
smarter indexing of content, handling of item revisions are all coming soon...
The search query parser is a little flaky and can sometimes crash Awasu
if it's given anything more complicated than a few simple words.
If you have problems with this, please send me the query string.
The search engine currently does not do any stemming. That is, if you search
for "quickly", it will not find "quick", "quicker", "quickest" or any
other variations. Some basic stopping is done e.g. simple words such as "the"
and "and" are not indexed and are also removed from queries.
You may find that Awasu refuses to start because of problems opening
the search index. If this happens, let us know and rebuild the index (using ArchiveMaintenance.exe).
