Feature Release

Webinator is a highly customizable package that allows a Website administrator to easily create and deploy a high quality search interface to collections of web documents. With support for multiple collections, a single installation can serve searches for many websites, or different areas within a website, and a customizable thesaurus or synonym file allows users to find documents even if the terminology they use is different from that on the site. Webinator creates a full-text search interface to collections of HTML, PDF, word processing, and other types of documents, which may be on a web site, intranet, or anywhere on the Internet. Features include: relevance ranking, customizable user interface, web-based administration, Index Flash and JavaScript links and content. Index multiple sites, update while in use, similarity searches ('more like this'), indexes secure (ssl/https) sites, ignores navigation bars and duplicate pages, detailed verification and logging.
