Announcing New dtSearch® .NET Spider API; Terabyte Engine for Linux; OpenOffice Support

P: n/a
New release expands-through a .NET Spider API, to Linux, and to
OpenOffice-dtSearch's ability to index over a terabyte of text in a
single index, with indexed search time typically less than a second

BETHESDA, MD (January 10, 2006) dtSearch Corp., a leading supplier of
enterprise and developer text retrieval software, announces Version 7.2
of its product line for instantly searching terabytes of documents
across a desktop, network, Internet or Intranet. The new version adds
a .NET Spider API for the dtSearch Engine for Win & .NET, and updates
the dtSearch Engine for Linux to the "terabyte indexer" code base.
The new release also adds OpenOffice to the extensive list of supported
file types.

Product line overview. All dtSearch products can index over a terabyte
of text in a single index (as well as create and simultaneously search
an unlimited number of indexes). Indexed search time is typically less
than a second even across terabytes of data.

Along with the "terabyte indexer," all dtSearch products generally
share the same feature set:
· over two dozen indexed, unindexed, full-text and fielded data search
options
· display of HTML, XML and PDF files with highlighted hits and with
embedded images, links and formatting intact
· built-in HTML converters for browser display of non-Web-ready
content (word processor, database, spreadsheet, presentation, ZIP, CSV,
Unicode, and other popular file types) with highlighted hits
· XML-based distributed searching, including integrated display of
local and remote content

The dtSearch Spider provides:
· support for public sites, secure content HTTPS, password-accessible
sites, and forms-based authentication
· searching of Web-based content to any specified level of horizontal
or vertical depth
· support for dynamically-generated content (ASP.NET, MS CMS,
SharePoint, etc.) as well as static content (HTML, XML, PDF, etc.)
· integrated relevancy-ranking of Spidered and non-Spidered content,
including WYSWYG display of dynamic and static Web-ready content with
highlighted hits

dtSearch Desktop with Spider instantly searches files on a PC (or on
PC-accessible network drives). dtSearch Network with Spider searches
across a network running in a client/server capacity. Both instantly
search and display with highlighted hits a wide variety of content,
including: email messages (Outlook, Outlook Express, Exchange, Eudora
and other .MSG formats) along with the full text of email attachments,
MS Office and now OpenOffice files, PDF, XML, HTML, ZIP, CSV, Unicode
and other content. Through the dtSearch Spider, both applications can
also add Web-based content to a local or network search.

dtSearch Web with Spider quickly publishes a large volume of instantly
searchable data to an Internet or Intranet site. The Spider expands
the scope of the searchable database beyond a site's own data to
content on other sites. dtSearch Publish offers easy publishing of an
instantly searchable document collection to CD, DVD, portable
harddrive, and the like. The product can also mirror an existing Web
site on CD/DVD. Both applications now add OpenOffice to the list of
file types that the applications can publish (to the Web or to CD/DVD),
instantly search, and display with highlighted hits.

The dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine lets developers add dtSearch search
functionality to Web-based and other applications. The dtSearch Engine
also provides developers access to dtSearch's extensive file format
support, including dtSearch's WYSYWG hit-highlighted search display
of Web-ready files, and proprietary built-in HTML converters for
non-Web-ready files such as MS Office documents.

The dtSearch Engine for Win & .NET supports SQL, C++, Delphi, Java, C#,
VB.NET, ASP.NET, C++.NET, and ADO.NET. The new release adds additional
..NET APIs, including a new .NET Spider API, making the Spider
functionality (described above) available for the first time through a
..NET API. The new release also updates the dtSearch Engine for Linux,
with C++ and Java APIs, to the current "terabyte indexer" code
base. Finally, the new release adds OpenOffice to the list of file
types that both versions of the dtSearch Engine can convert on-the-fly
to HTML for display with highlighted hits.

The dtSearch product line generally offers over two dozen indexed,
unindexed, fielded and full-text search options. These include:
fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and
spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus (both through a built-in
thesaurus and through optional user-defined synonym rings), boolean
(and/or/not), natural language relevancy ranking (by hit term
frequency, density and rarity), positional scoring ranking, phrase,
phonic, wildcard, bilateral proximity, directed proximity, stemming,
numeric range, user-defined variable term weighting, and special
forensics options. The dtSearch product line also provides
international language support through Unicode, covering hundreds of
international languages.

Pricing is $199 for dtSearch Desktop with Spider, from $800 for
dtSearch Network with Spider, from $999 for dtSearch Web with Spider,
and from $2,500 for dtSearch Publish. dtSearch offers a variety of
royalty-based and royalty-free pricing options for the dtSearch Text
Retrieval Engine. For more information, or to download
