I am pleased to announce the release of TextIndexNG 1.01.

TextIndexNG is a pluggable index for the ZCatalog that enhances
the fulltext indexing capabilities of Zope by providing
the following features:

    * support for document converters (HTML, PDF, WinWord, PowerPoint,
      Postscript). Custom converters can be easily added

    * stemmer support for 12 languages

    * optional support for right truncation

    * similarity search (soundex, metaphone support) (for english)

    * NEAR search

    * phrase search

    * pluggable query parsers (two parsers included)

    * stop words support

    * new test tab for interactive testing

    * 2-3 times faster than Zopes TextIndex (more to come ;-) )

    * compatible with ASCII, ISO-8859-1


    * Zope 2.5 or Zope CVS trunk checkout

This is a bugfix release and fixes some minor problems with
similarity search and the PyQueryParser. See
for details.
