*[CALL TO ACTION] testing new FoxTrot Search version 6 public beta 5 please*

Dear FoxTrot-Search customers,

Please find below the last public beta before release. PLEASE, may we ask
you to download, install, use and report back on here or using our
reporting form
http://rucksearchcom.ipage.com/download/beta/foxtrot-search- version-6.html

There have been quite a bit of downloading going on, but too little
feedback. Even if all is well, we do want to hear about it before the final
6.0 release.

THANK YOU !

The FoxTrot-search team
at CTM Development SA

*FoxTrot 6.0 beta 5 release notes*

Welcome to the third *public* beta of FoxTrot Professional Search, FoxTrot
Search Server and FoxTrot Personal Search.

One year in the making, this release is index-compatible with version 5.7
so you can run either alternatively without compromising your indices.

This release has been extensively tested in-house and we feel it is ripe
for beta testing with our most dedicated users, which is why you are
receiving this (as a member of the foxtrot-discuss Google group)

To download, please use either of the following links:


FoxTrot Professional Search:

FoxTrot Personal Search:

*What’s new in 6.0b5 (from version 5):*

▾ *Increased performance*

- optimized some operations when the index is stored on a rotational HDD
- reduce file fragmentation
- reduced memory usage when displaying some HTML or PDF files
- Now built using Apple’s latest XCode version 8 compilers


▾ *Feature enhancements*

- Added option to only index filenames when indexing contents
- reduced the number of situations where the “manage indices” window is
partially empty, when the indexer is busy
- "copy path" added to the contextual menu (search results, indexed
locations, black list)
- show missing disk space when attempting manual compact and disk is
almost full
- file paths are now clickable with a popup menu to reveal in finder any
parent folder
- also display in the status bar the number of items found outside of
the target folder, when searching only in a specific folder
- allow drag-select to toggle multiple checkboxes (manage indices's file
types)
- added a button to rebuild an index, when it is not started


▾ *Enhanced multi-user and client-server features and license management * (FoxTrot
Pro 5 user and above & FoxTrot Search Server)

- Simplified the File Sharing integration to reduce the risk of having
access only to document text instead of rich documents from mounted servers
- Added the ability to use a custom certificate for authenticated
connections
- Implemented certificate trust management for authenticated
connections. (now you know what the letters CTM stands for)
- Updated to use a modern OpenSSL version
- After 5 failed login attempts, FoxTrot delays logging in for 15s, then
30s, 60s etc
- In Admin, allows selecting multiple users to delete them
- Now allows drag-select to toggle multiple checkboxes (admin's sharing
users)
- Optionally, FoxTrot Server can now automatically install its
registration code to logged-in FoxTrot Pro clients
- Implemented better verification of simultaneous usage on multiple
machines


*▾* *Code modernization*

- Implements modern windows (with no window title)
- Modernized some icons and widgets
- Now built using Apple’s latest XCode version 8 compilers
- New minimum requirements: macOS 10.9 or later
- removed dependency to deprecated QuickTime to preview video and audio
files


▾ *Better diagnostics*

- logged file exceptions include filenames
- more detailed logging when in indexing is very slow
- when processing a specific file takes longer than usual, the file name
is now displayed in the “manage indices” progress.


*▾* *Synchronization of index files to iPad’s and iPhones running FoxTrot
Attaché search*

- Added built-in *Google drive* support for maintaining up-to-date index
archives from FoxTrot Pro or Server to iOS devices running FoxTrot Attaché
Search


▾ *Miscellaneous enhancements and other fixes*

- highlighting of [washington -"new york" boston] (no longer highlights
occurrences of [new] or [york])
- the index could stop responding when attempting to search for regular
expressions on an index not configured to "store document textual contents"
- an error message is now displayed when attempting to search for exact
strings on an index not configured to "store document textual contents"
- possible crash fixed on startup in certain circumstances
- on macOS 10.11 and later, pinch-zooming would not work as expected
- an "unregistered" dialog could appear when launching FoxTrot, when
using regular expressions or exact matches
-

Not sure what happened, but it seems the index file is not consistent. Try to rebuild it, and let us know if the problem ever occurs again.

Thanks for the report

"First, PowerMail downloads mail in about half the time of Entourage.
Second, it's rock solid. Hasn't crashed once (Entourage crashed
regularly). Third, searches are lightening fast, very impressive
facility. Fourth, it has a very nice filtering capability, at least
as strong as Entourage and probably stronger (my rules sets are fairly
straightforward). Fifth, it auto syncs with AddressBook without the
need for external scripts like in Entourage."

you can see from the attached files, the Main index cannot be created in
full.

Please advise.
