TextIndexNG is a pluggable index for the ZCatalog that enhances 
the full text indexing capabilities of Zope.

    (for english) 

  - NEAR search

  - phrase search

  - pluggable query parsers (two parsers included)

  - stop words support

  - new 'test' tab for interactive testing

  - faster than Zopes TextIndex

  - compatible with ASCII and all eight bit charactersets
