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 identifiersare now respected – they are syntax-highlighted properly, and if you hit + 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. :-)
