dtSearch Desktop with Spider new release adds FindPlusdistributed searching, a Web spider, enhanced XML support and Unicode support, to improve access to information throughout an organization. The new release also offers API enhancements, expanding the dtSearch developer components utility for use with a wide variety of programming languages. FindPlusdistributed searching is an integrated feature of dtSearch Desktop, Web and Network that conveniently allows a single search request to span everything from local drives to remote servers. Operating through a single user interface, FindPlus enables indexed searching of files and other data throughout an organization, without the need to collect the data in a monolithic repository. Because FindPlus uses an XML-based protocol for exchanging and aggregating search information, developers using the dtSearch Engine can also easily incorporate this capability into their own applications.

In addition, enhanced XML support provides a way to combine data from any source, while retaining the ability to search on field and table information. XML is increasingly becoming a universal data format. However, other search engines do not fully incorporate the hierarchical structures in XML data, effectively reducing XML to "flat" text. In contrast, dtSearch can perform indexed searches using the full range of dtSearch features across an entire XML database, or limited to a specific combination of fields or sub-fields, with no sacrifice in speed.
