Geneva, Switzerland - CTM Development today is proud to announce
FoxTrot Professional Search 2.5, an update to their popular document
indexing and retrieval solution for Mac OS X. Perfect for anyone who
works with saved documents for future reference, FoxTrot Professional
Search helps locate documents and their contents using multiple
categorization of search results, ranked by relevance.

FoxTrot Professional Search is a powerful find-by-content solution
that offers precision tools for finding the proverbial "needle in a
haystack" directly within PDF, HTML, word processing, e-mail and rich-
media content and metadata. The product has been especially well
received in legal (law firm and courts), media (newsrooms researchers,
ad agencies and editors), mobile contexts (MacBook users with document
collections) as well as by casual users stepping up from FoxTrot
Personal Search or Apple's Spotlight.

By leveraging and extending Mac OS X's built-in Spotlight
capabilities, FoxTrot Professional Search utilizes the latest Snow
Leopard technologies, featuring document preview and full view
capabilities, with secondary document-level search features. Users can
manage multiple indexed collections effortlessly and time search index
updates without even launching the application.

Feature Highlights:
* Multiple categories of relevance-ranked results
* Document preview and full view, with secondary document-level search
* Multiple indexed collections and timed updates without launching the
* Client-server access to peer-to-peer FoxTrot Professional
applications and dedicated FoxTrot Search servers
* Worldwide Unicode language support

"CTM Development has been creating search and collaboration software
since the first multi-platform Swiss telephone directories back in
1987, and search has been an important part of CTM PowerMail since its
inception in 1995," said Jean-Michel Karr, co-founder of CTM
Development SA. "CTM FoxTrot Professional is the culmination of many
years of focus on find-by-content."

FoxTrot Professional Search builds on years of experience in search
functionality refined within CTM's PowerMail and FoxTrot Personal
Search products, which continue to be enhanced. Version 2.5 introduces
higher performance, an expanded timeline categorization as well as
networked sharing of indexes:

When customers purchase a 5-user license, the application
automatically acts as a peer-to-peer indexing server.

With a 10-user license (or more), customers receive a full fledged
client-server product with a server component that can be deployed any
Mac OS X or Windows 7/Vista/XP with file sharing enabled, as well as
on Xserve and the new Mac mini Server or Windows Server 2003, Windows
Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. This makes FoxTrot
Professional Search particularly suited in networked environments
where sharing archived documents and metadata is paramount.

Minimum Requirements:
* Mac OS X Version 10.4.11 Tiger or later (Snow Leopard compatible)
* Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
* FoxTrot Professional Search & FoxTrot Search Admin supports Mac OS X
or Mac OS X Server 10.4.11, 10.5 or 10.6
