Swish-e 2.4.1 is available for download.  This is a minor update with a 
few bug fixes and additions to the C API and related Perl module.  Most 
users of 2.4.0 will not have a need to upgrade.

  Version 2.4.1 - December 17, 2003
    * Added new example CGI script
        search.cgi is a new skeleton CGI script that uses SWISH::API for
        searching. It is installed in the same location as swish.cgi.

    * Add Fuzzy access to C and Perl interfaces
        Added a number of functions to the C API (and SWISH::API) to access
        the stemmer used when indexing a given index.

    * Commas in numbers
        Added commas to summary display at end of indexing.

    * Insert whitespace between tags
        Parser.c was updated to flush the text buffer before and after every
        (non-inline HTML) tag.

        The problem was that:


        would index as a single word "foobarbaz".

    * was updated to work with SWISH::Filter and to work on
        Windows. is a program to fetch files from the file system
        and works with the -S prog input method.

    * Problem with --enable-incremental option
        Fixed configure script to build incremental option. Note that this
        is still experimental. But testers are welcome.

    * headers.c bug
        Mark Fletcher with the help of valgrind found a bug in headers.c
        function SwishIndexHeaderNames used by the C API.

    * Clarify documentation regarding search order
        At the prompting of Doralyn Rossmann updated SEARCH.pod to try and
        make the explanation of searching clearer, and to fix an error in
        the description of nested searches.
