Release Notes: Selective searching by directory was fixed. It had been broken for a few releases by a security enhancement.
Release Notes: The new HOOK feature for calling an external program for output customization needed some minor tweaks. A sample site that uses this feature for adding annotations to URLs in the search results has been made available. Users can view each other's notes as part of the search result page.
Release Notes: Webglimpse now provides an optional hook for inserting data from an external module into the results output. The external subroutine can act on the URL of the hit results, the original user query, and all other output variables configured on the system. This release also has a fix for the New Query box when using the simple search form and an updated install script that avoids compiler warnings for old code.
Release Notes: Improved handling of dynamic URLs, particularly those including queries in the path.
Release Notes: This release adds an option to output search results at URLs like http://yourserver.whatever/search/keyword instead of http://yourserver.whatever/cgi-bin/webglimpse.cgi?query=... This type of URL is more user-friendly, bookmarkable, and search engine friendly. It requires some Web server configuration.
Release Notes: Now you can incorporate SQL results into a Webglimpse search. Both exact and approximate matches into database tables can be combined in a controlled way with a full text search of Web sites and local files. Searching against a text dump of the database that has been indexed by glimpse provides very fast and flexible matching against large datasets. Another major new feature allows search result pages to be exported as static pages to the Web site. SEO types, take note: this allows your ranked and merged search results to be exposed to search engines such as Google.
Release Notes: 'Homemade' code that is now better imported from CPAN was removed. This version makes use of the URI module and improves use of the LWP module for URL parsing and retrieval.
Release Notes: This release contains an add-on called BibGlimpse that lets you use Webglimpse as a scientific reprints repository. Features of BibGlimpse include addition of reprints without forms, automated bibliographic record retrieval for PubMed listed papers using machine learning techniques to match a record to the PDF with a success rate of over 95%, management of user annotation of papers, and structured full-text queries using the WebGlimpse engine.
Release Notes: This release improves handling of links on redirected pages (stores the correct base href in the filtered file), and also provides access to the query keywords in the customizable ranking formula. This lets site admins say things like 'if one of the user's query words is in the actual URL of the link, return this hit first'.
