    Release Notes: This release moves almost all features from the commercial version into the free version. The most prominent new features include the computation of dynamic page weights, a new gatherer that intelligently chooses which pages to crawl by their weights, site compression, and extended image and audio search. The indexer is much faster thanks to new sorting routines.

      Release Notes: This release can download JPEG, PNG, and GIF images, store their thumbnails, and search in them through their reference texts. HTML documents can now be filtered by their content. This release significantly speeds up the indexer and the search server on multi-processor systems. It can be used on Darwin (Mac OS X).

        Release Notes: Sherlock now contains a new library for analyzing the contents of the documents. An existing index can now be quickly patched by new cards. The search server dumps the context of long cards better, and it can serve as a simple database by allowing browsing of all cards. A faster utility, "shcp", was added for copying the index into different machines. The configuration mechanism has been improved. Sherlock now supports the AMD64 architecture. Most modules have been substantially optimized, cleaned up, and corrected.

          Release Notes: The limitation on indexing only the first 4096 words in a document has been removed. Two morphological stemmers and utilities to create tables for them have been added. The customization interface, the makefiles, and the configuration system have been greatly improved. A major cleanup of the code has been done, several bugs have been fixed, and many small features have been added.

            Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in the gatherer concerning compressed buckets. Upgrading is essential.

              Release Notes: The license has been changed from proprietary to the GPL, so the program is no longer limited to 100,000 documents. Support for transparent compression was added, and the bucket-file and the indices typically shrink by 30%. The indexer now assigns link texts to the pages and the search server can search by them. The program has been heavily optimized and scaled up. Many other minor features have also been added.

                  Release Notes: Language detection, stemming and lemmatization, synonymic dictionaries, a spelling checker, and searching according to file type were added in version 2.4. Priority gathering, a table of equivalent servers (to avoid duplicates), searching of context-dependent words, handling of the NOARCHIVE tag, and explain mode for the Q-factor were added in version 2.5. An interface to external parsers (Postscript, MS Word), support for Unicode ligatures, searching in URLs and filenames, and better penalization of documents were added in version 2.6. "@" can be indexed as a word. Many speed optimizations were made.

                    Release Notes: Among lots of minor enhancements and bugfixes, this version features a new near matcher and uses shared libraries to reduce the size of the binaries installed. Also, a tool for recovering broken databases has been added.
