New Search Engine & IFilter
STW4 uses Lucene.NET, meaning that any file type that has an appropriate IFilter
installed on the system will get indexed. Simple text files are supported out-of-the-box. Microsoft Office documents should already have an IFilter on Windows. For PDFs you'll have to download and install
the IFilter yourself, making sure you pick the correct version (x86 or x64). Note: Adobe Reader on x86 system already installs the PDF IFilter, while this is not true for x64 systems.
For now, given that there isn't much to discuss about, we do not have an area for v4 in our forum, nor a public issue tracker. If you want to send feedback or suggestions, simply use this page's discussion area
The Evaluation License
allows anyone to download and use the software for evaluation and testing purposes. Production and commercial uses are forbidden (for your safety - and ours too).
