Sphider 2.1 released 23 November

Post by captquirk »

Sphider 2.1, for all variations, will be released 23 November 2018.

It seems that in previous 2.0 versions the wildcard (*) and negate (-) searches were broken. Well, actually BLOCKED would be a better way of saying it. Security got a little TOO tight and the '*' and '-' characters were being stripped from the queries. Those characters are needed for wildcard and negative (word NOT in) searches.

The 2.1 variations (classic, PDO, PostgreSQL, and SQLite) have these characters restored.
