dtSearch Updates Product Line

dtSearch, a provider of enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters, has released version 7.87 with a wide range of updates across  the dtSearch product line.  The release covers dtSearch Desktop with Spider and dtSearch Network with Spider for searching PC and network-based content; dtSearch Web with Spider for searching across an internet/intranet site; dtSearch Publish for publishing data to portable media; and the dtSearch Engine SDK with builds for multiple operating systems.

The developers’ version includes the new dtSearch Engine for macOS.  dtSearch’s core developer product, the dtSearch Engine, has native 64-bit and 32-bit .NET, C++ and Java APIs, with SDKs for Linux, Windows, UWP, and now Mac, with Android in beta.

Also for developers, version 7.87 adds new DataSource API SharePoint indexing code samples.  dtSearch products can index SharePoint data in three ways: using the dtSearch Spider as an “off the shelf” component in dtSearch Desktop/Network/Web; through a .NET Spider API for dtSearch Engine developers; and also for developers, through the dtSearch Engine DataSource API.  In addition, new sample C# code demonstrates use of the DataSource API to connect with the SharePoint client API, while a new CodeProject article demonstrates C# indexing using the SharePoint server API.

All version 7.87 products can now generate SHA-256 hash values as part of the indexing process, and then associate each hash value with the corresponding document as searchable metadata, without modification of the original files or their underlying hash values. 

Additional features across the dtSearch product line include the ability to index over a terabyte of text in a single index, and the ability to create and search any number of indexes, and search indexes during updates. 

The dtSearch product line also has more than 25 search types, including special forensics search options (such as the ability to identify credit card numbers in data).  For international languages, dtSearch products support Unicode, including support for right-to-left languages, and Chinese/Japanese/Korean character handling options.

dtSearch products offer federated search across any number of databases, directories, email files and attachments, and the dtSearch Spider adds local and remote online content to a search. 

The product line uses dtSearch’s own document filters to work with “Office” documents, PDF, compression formats, emails, and multilayer nested attachments, online data and other databases.  After a search, the document filters support the display of retrieved data with multicolor highlighted hits.
