There is now an enhanced crawler with live link structure visualization. This release adds a Host Browser to explore the file structure of crawled hosts. It shows loaded pages, pages with errors, and pending files in the same way a file browser would show the contents of a host.

The interface has a new modern look. A "Search Portal Integration" toolbox helps to integrate a YaCy search on your own Web pages using a search widget.
