Entrian Source Search 1.7.6: More speed, fewer crashes, fewer kittens (sorry…)

Sunday, March 12th, 2017 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased – and also apologetic – to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.6, which has one bugfix, two enhancements, and which I’m afraid removes one essential feature:

  • Fixed a crash (“DRAGDROP_E_NOTREGISTERED”).  Thanks, Jeffy and Frédéric.
  • Scanning for changed files is now faster.
  • If your query is a single phrase starting with a minus sign, eg. -200, that’s interpreted as a negative filter (“show me all the files that don’t contain 200“) but that’s probably not what you meant – you now get a warning suggesting you might need quotes.  Thanks, Anders and the other person whose email I can’t find for the life of me.
  • Removed the accidentally-implemented ability to paste rich text into the Search box using Shift+Insert or Shift+Ctrl+V (thanks, Martin).  Sadly this does have the side-effect of preventing this sort of thing:

Sorry about that last one… if you feel you can live without the kitten-pasting feature, you can download this new version from the download page or the gallery.  If you’d rather stick with version 1.7.5, I totally understand.

One more thing: after nine years, Entrian Source Search now has a proper user manual.  🙂
