Branch moin/1.6-xapian-fpletz
=============================

  Known main issues:
    * Somethings' wrong with the matching of stemmed terms, i.e. matches
      beyond single WikiWord borders although matching lower-case only
      (see MoinMoin/search.py:92)
    * Matching of stemmed terms is generally unreliable because the
      matches (and consequently the count) are not obtained by Xapian
      as _moinSearch is called with the Xapian results. Use the Xapian
      matches?
    * Regex searching with Xapian?

  ToDo:
    * HACK: MoinMoin.Xapian.Index._get_languages (wait for proper
      metadata)
    * Mockup the new search UI
    * Write/update documentation for all the new search stuff
    * Wikifarms support (multiple indexes)
    * Indexing and searching of Categories (new term prefix)
    * Finish the stemming/matching stuff

  New Features:
    * Faster search thanks to Xapian
    * Searching for languages with new prefix lang/language, i.e. lang:de
      Note: Only available when Xapian is activated

Diary
=====

2006-06-10 Changed xapian_term() functions to return xapian.Query objects
but without touching the prefixes as we don't have a prefixMap yet. Will
implement this in MoinMoin.Xapian.Index. AndExpression needed some more
tweaking to use AND_NOT because Xapian doesn't provide a pure NOT. Should
be no issue with OrExpression as _moinSearch handles this correctly.

2006-06-11
    * Now handling prefixes correctly (title -> S, XLINKTO always with ':')

2006-06-15
    * Integrated basic stemming, english only for now (see issues).
    * Introduced LanguageSearch (new prefix lang/language)
    * Searching now works with stemmed terms but matching is limited due
      to usage of _moinSearch

2006-06-16
    * Indexing & searching now works without a stemmer installed (small
      bugfixes)
