No, UNC paths don't paths work in 2.0.  At least I can't get them to work.

I think you are confusing two things.  The change from 2.0 to 2.1-dev is
that the backslash is an escape character now.

Try the latest at:

David Norris spent a big chunks of yesterday trying to fix that.

I tested on Win98, but my only share I have setup is a Samba share on a
Linux machine.  Indexing that worked fine.  NOTE: It now seems to work with
*forward* slashes.  So:

       swish-e -i //share/path/like/this

A trailing slash does NOT work.

       swish-e -i //share/path/like/this/  <- doesn't work

Also, if you want to maintain DOS style UNC paths, you can use this:

       ReplaceRules replace / \\\\

Then your search results will have DOS style paths.
