Posted by Neophytos Demetriou on
OpenFTS-Perl is ready for release. Here is Oleg's post to pgsql-hackers:


I'm about to announce a release of OpenFTS search engine.

Short blurb:

  OpenFTS (Open Source Full Text Search engine)
  is an advanced PostgreSQL-based search engine
  that provides online indexing of data and relevance
  ranking for database searching. Close integration
  with database allows use of metadata to restrict
  search results.

This is actually what we use at and
several other sites. Perl version is available for download,
TCL version (with AOL server support) will be available soon -
actually it just needs to wrap a release.
