Thunderstone Releases Webinator™ Web Index & Retrieval System Version 6 and Search Appliance Version 8

CLEVELAND, OH — Making it even easier to integrate high quality search into your website -- Webinator Version 6 and Search Appliance Version 8 are here.

New features include:

  • More intuitive searches, including Unicode support and accent-insensitive queries:
    This improves non-English searches; e.g. "cœur" will also match "coeur", "resume" will match "resumé".
  • Enhanced search results, including multiple snippets and styled highlighting.
  • XML/SOAP API to ease integration of search into dynamic sites.
  • Meta Search to allow searching multiple profiles together in one transaction.
  • Results Authorization so unauthorized documents don't show up in search results.
  • HTTP/1.1 support including gzip compression to reduce crawl times and bandwidth utilization:
    Reduces load on targeted servers, and potentially allows access to more content.
  • And much more: see the full list of new features here.
