Release notes - FoxTrot Professional Search version 5.1b1

New features - 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.
? 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.

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.
? Outlook 2015 support
? 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).
? 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.

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.
