Today I found that Sphinx search engine has been updated. Major new features include:
- extended query mode with boolean, field limits, phrases, and proximity support (eg.: @title "hello world"~10 | @body example program);
- extended sorting mode (eg.: @weight DESC @id ASC);
- combined phrase+statistical ranking which takes words frequencies into account (currently in extended mode only);
- official Python API;
- contributed Perl and Ruby APIs.
I have updated Sphinx Client Library along with Sphinx 0.9.7-RC2 Windows build.
