pike.git/CHANGES:1:   Changes since Pike 7.8.352 (third 7.8 release):   ----------------------------------------------------------------------      Extensions and New Functions   ----------------------------      o Added module Search. -  FIXME: Needs a couple of paragraphs of description. +     -  +  This module implements a free text search database. It needs some +  indexed storage, and there is a storage backend for use with MySQL. +  There is support for indexers with filters for different document +  types. The query support includes metadata and date range searches. +  +  It is the core of the search functionality that is used in the +  commercial Roxen products, so it has been in production use for +  quite some time already. +    o Typed query result support in Sql.Sql and in the MySQL module.       Traditionally the SQL glue has returned all types of data as    formatted strings with their display representations. Now there are    new so-called "typed" variants of the query functions (typed_query,    big_typed_query, and streaming_typed_query in the Sql.Sql class)    that instead return the data as the appropriate pike native types,    e.g. pike integers for SQL integers, pike floats for SQL floats,    etc.
