Release Notes: This release implements a buddy-like heap and buffered file in "index" for better memory usage and faster processing. It fixes improper clones processing in "index", a few coredumps in "searchd" and "index", a few memory leaks in "index", and the -P and -A flags in "index." The amount of stack used by "index" has been reduced. Concurrency between searchd threads having many DB connections has been improved; Options have been added to "index" to delete URLs from an inverted index and to re-create broken citation files from the DB. The I/O nce of "searchd" has been optimized.
