Source Search 1.4.18: A better citizen

Monday, March 10th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.18, which includes the following features and fixes:

  • Never gets in the way: Source Search now uses Opportunistic Locks to ensure that it can never cause file conflicts.  If it’s in the middle of indexing a file and another process tries to open that file, it will back off and try again later, guaranteeing the other process access to the file regardless of the sharing modes involved.  (Source Search has always opened files with maximum sharing, but this goes a step further.)
  • Syntax highlighting bugfix: When a #region line contained an apostrophe (#region Here's my lovely region) the syntax highlighting no longer gets confused.

1.4.18 is available from the Download page as a free upgrade for licensed users and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.17: Save keystrokes, hide bogus errors

Thursday, February 13th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.17, which includes the following features and fixes:

  • Save keystrokes: When you search for files using a file: / dir: / ext: / age: filter with no other search terms and there’s only one match, it will be opened in the editor automatically.  That’s 100% less wear and tear on your Down and Enter keys!  Thanks, Chris.
  • Bugfix for very large files: Source files larger than 4MB are now always completely indexed.  Thanks, Kyle.
  • Bogus error removal: Sometimes the Visual Studio editor will raise a “Catastrophic failure” exception when showing a hit, even though the operation has worked perfectly.  Rather than diligently passing these errors on, Source Search now ignores them.  Thanks, Steve.

As always, the release is available from the Source Search Download page as a free upgrade for licensed users and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.

Entrian Source Search 1.4.15: F# highlighting, speedups, hotkey for substring search

Sunday, November 10th, 2013 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.15, with these features and fixes:

  • F# support:  Hello F# developers!  For those who are new to Entrian Source Search, it’s a Visual Studio addin that builds a full-text index of your source code, giving you instant, syntax-highlighted search results.  It supports fuzzy search, proximity (loose) search, autocomplete, age filtering and much more:
     

    Note for existing users: if you already have F# code in your index, you’ll need to force a refresh to get it highlighted. Thanks, Jack and Vasily.

  • Performance boosts for indexing.  Overall indexing performance is up by about 25%, and by more like 50% for large files.
  • New hotkey Shift+Alt+Num * performs a substring search by taking the word under the cursor and adding leading and trailing asterisks, like *this*.  Thanks, Chris.
  • Corrupt file system events from network file servers no longer cause files to transiently disappear from the index.  Thanks, Jean-Michel.
  • License names containing ampersands are now displayed properly in the License Key dialog.

You can download this latest release from the Download page.

Update (1.4.16): F# double-backtick identifiers ``like this`` are now respected – they are syntax-highlighted properly, and if you hit Alt+= on one of them then Source Search will search for the whole identifier.  Thanks again, Vasily.

Question for you F# guys: What else can I do to make Entrian Source Search an excellent tool for F# development?  I have very little experience with F#, so I’m relying on you to give me ideas.  :-)

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.14: Memory leak fixed

Saturday, September 21st, 2013 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.14, which fixes a memory leak that could (eventually) cause an OutOfMemoryException.

The upgrade is free to existing users and available as a free trial for everyone else.  Download it here.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.13: Automatic phrase search

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 by Richie Hindle

I’m delighted to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.13, with two new features:

  • Automatic phrase search.  You’re no longer required to use double quotes to search for phrases – by checking the new “Phrase Search” option on the toolbar, a search for One Two (without quotes) will search for the phrase One Two rather than searching for all the Ones and all the Twos:

    Thanks, Ondřej, Metodi, Matthew and others.
  • Control over the default Looseness of a Loose search.  Previously, checking the Loose Phrases button would search for matches within ten tokens of each other – you can now control that via More / Options. (And you can still control it per-search using a query like loose50:”One Two”.)  Thanks, Ondřej.

Automatic phrase search is now the default for new installations, but upgrading an existing installation won’t enable it.

You can download this latest release from the Download page.

Entrian Attach 1.2.2: Attach to running processes according to their window title

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Attach 1.2.2, which can now attach to running processes according to their window title:

Thanks for the suggestion, Adam!

This release also fixes two bugs:

  • Attach could crash for processes with long command lines.
  • When using Attach Now where there are multiple candidate processes but only some of them match your condition, Attach would correctly attach to the matching processes but then tell you that there were no matching processes (duh).

Download from the usual place.
