Version 1.3.1 Released

From: Roy Tennant <rtennant(at)not-real.library.berkeley.edu>
Date: Sat Jan 16 1999 - 23:10:28 GMT
Version 1.3.1 of SWISH-E is now available for downloading at:

ftp://sunsite.berkeley.edu/pub/swish-e/

Key features include:

* the ability to specify META tags whose contents should be stored in the
index and returned in search results ("document properties")
* word stemming, which will will automatically match (English) words that
had the same word stem, so a search for "emotional" will match "emotion".
This converts plural forms into singular as well. This can be activated or
not in the configuration file.
* the HTTP and File System indexing systems were combined so one
executable can index both web sites and files. 
* for the HTTP indexing system, there is a new option of treating URL's as
case insensitive
