Entrian Source Search 1.4.4 – Visual Studio 2012 Dark Theme, more powerful Inclusion/Exclusion

Saturday, September 29th, 2012 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.4:

  • Support for the Visual Studio 2012 Dark Theme:
    Entrian Source Search in the VS2012 Dark Theme
  • Inclusions: you can now specify which files to include in an index.  Under normal circumstances Source Search indexes all file types, excluding those you tell it to, but you can now give it a list of file types to include.  Thanks, Anton and Darker.
  • Per-solution control over inclusions and exclusions: if you normally include all files, but for a particular solution you only want to include *.vb (and not *.Designer.vb, if you like) then you can specify all that in the index properties.  Thanks, Darker.
  • Instant update of new exclusions: when you add a new exclusion pattern, matching files are removed from the index immediately.  Previously you might have had to wait a while for the index to catch up.   Thanks, Flavius.
  • You no longer get a bogus Visual Studio error message when jumping to a search hit in the SQL editor.  Thanks, Antonio.

Source Search 1.4.2: Bugfix

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 by Richie Hindle

Hot on the heels of Entrian Source Search 1.4.1 comes a bugfix release:

  • Fixed an embarrassing race condition in the auto-complete code that could lead to a crash (thanks, Joseph).

Entrian Source Search 1.4.1 – Visual Studio 2012 support

Sunday, September 9th, 2012 by Richie Hindle

I’ve just released Entrian Source Search 1.4.1 with the following fixes and features:

  • Support for Visual Studio 2012 (but no support for dark themes yet – that will be in the next release).
  • Where an index was corrupted by a crashing Visual Studio, Source Search now identifies that the index is corrupt when you restart, and automatically recreates the index.
  • Indexing an entire drive now works (thanks, Patrick).
  • You can now use Ctrl+C in the results list to copy the pathname of the current hit to the clipboard (thanks, Peter).
  • The auto-complete dropdown now appears properly when the Source Search window is undocked.
  • Fixed a naming conflict whereby two solutions with the same name in similar locations could unintentionally share an index (thanks, Christoph and Alex).
  • The colors in the results list now update immediately after you change your editor colors via Tools/Options.  (Previously you needed to go to the Source Search Options dialog to get them to update.)

As always, there’s a 30-individual-day trial for new users, and the upgrade is free for existing users.
