CTM Development is pleased to announce version 5.5b5 of its FoxTrot Search products.Given the vast number of changes since version 5.03, we are incrementing this release number to 5.5 - but if you own version 5.x then this will be free to you regardless.

http://ctmdevcom.ipage.com/download/beta/ft_search_server_55 b5.dmg

WE NEED FEEDBACK PLEASE. Very often, we post these intermiediate releases and hear almos nothing - we cannot assume that all is good unless you say so ! Please report back to us via the foxtrot-discuss group or directly if you prefer, but please do report especially as this is the final candidate for 5.5

Best regards,

Release notes - FoxTrot Search products version 5.5b5

Note: FoxTrot 5.x is a paid upgrade for users of version 4.x and earlier

Version 5.5b5

Bug fixes

? A "can't connect" error message could happen in some circumstances, and has been fixed.
? FoxTrot's system menu could appear twice after rebooting.
? A possible crash of the Admin application has been fixed when the server is disconnected.

Features

? A quick test shown compatibility on OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
? Accelerated FoxTrot launch substantially when Finder tags are used intensively.


Search improvements

? Search string word completion: when typing words in the search field, partial words are autocompleted. Suggestions are based on the content of your index.

? Typo corrections: when searching for a misspelled word, a similar word is suggested.

? [PRO] Added the ability to search for regular expressions.

? [PRO] Added the ability to search in the file contents only, ignoring the filenames and other metadata.

? Added "log file", "XML file" and "file archive" types in the "file types" category.

? [PRO] Added an "all criteria / any criterion (AND / OR)" popup menu when combining multiple criteria.


Document viewing improvements

? [PRO] Added support for searching and highlighting regular expressions occurrences in all supported document types, including PDF, Word, Pages, Excel etc.

? [PRO] Added a popup menu in the search field of the document window to toggle between Words, Consecutive Words, Exact String, Regular Expression, or FoxTrot query.


Index improvements

? By default, the content of log files and generic XML files is no longer indexed. This usually enhances the quality and the performance of the index, as these files contain many non relevant data. This can be toggled when adding a custom folder to the list of indexed locations.

? Added the ability to disable some file types for content indexing, when indexing predefined locations, such as Documents or Downloads.

? Outlook 2015, Dropbox and iCloud Drive support

? Added a "view resource hogs" button in the index configuration window; this can help removing from your index huge files that contain few interesting text but many encoded, garbled or numerical data.

? Email messages stored or exported to the .mbox format with a 'TEXT' HFS file type are no longer indexed by contents (this would index a bunch of encoded data).

? Contact's phone numbers are also indexed unformatted (with no space).

? When a third party Spotlight metadata importer has a memory leak, it is now periodically relaunched to prevent using all the available memory.


Bug fixes

? Some files could be displayed using their "title" metadata attribute instead of the filename; some items (email messages...) could be displayed using their (cryptic) filename instead of the title.

? "Update folder in running indices" was updating all files by content, regardless of the index settings.

? When adding a file to the blacklist, or when disabling some file types in the "index contents of files" list, the previously indexed contents of those files was only removed from the index when rebuilding entirely.

? When displaying found words in some PDF documents, the document could be scrolled horizontally excessively.

? Fixed a case where FoxTrot could fail to update the index, after FoxTrot's preferences have been erased.

? Fixed a bug in FoxTrot's system menu on OS X 10.8.

Hi

The links do not work for me either.

The beta before this one has been working fine for me, by the way.

David.

Hello,

Most mysteriously, these links do work when clicked on more than once - all the while, displaying an error message on a webpage, even as the download occurs. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, this is the first time we have such a problem.

If you still encounter trouble, I’ve posted these images as well to another site:

http://powermail.simplenet.com/FoxTrot_Personal_Search_5.5b5 .dmg
