Release notes

- the result list has been modernized; it is more configurable, and can
be less wide, so more space can be used to preview found documents

- supports Lion's full screen mode

- all applications and processes are now 64-bit

- changed the keyboard shortcut to quit background agents to
control-command-Q, as option-command-Q is now used by Lion

- added predefined indexable locations
- Outlook 2011
- Evernote 3

- FoxTrot version 4 now requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later

- bug fixes
- fixed continuous disk access when an index file can't be found,
in certain circumstances
- fixed a crash in certain circumstances, when optimizing the index
- fixed a crash when the index size is larger than 4 GB
- fixed a performance issue in certain circumstances

============================================================ =============
Additional major enhancements for FoxTrot Pro and FoxTrot Search Server:
============================================================ =============

- an excerpt containing the found words in every found document can now
shown directly in the result list, offering first-glance search result preview. The
indexed text is optionally stored, and is compressed with very high efficiency.

- a plain text version of found documents can now be displayed, when
indexed files are located on an offline disk or file server. This allows the
indexing off masses of documents on a MacBook and carrying around their plain text
shadow, whose essential plain text contents can be viewed when disconnected. If the
source hard disk or file server are mounted, the indexed document will appear
instead of the plain text representation

Known bugs

- Occurences of double FoxTrot menu have been seen (unable to reproduce)
