Entrian Source Search 1.7.9: Autocreate indexes
Thursday, July 13th, 2017 by Richie Hindle
I’m very pleased to announce the release of Entrian Source Search 1.7.9, with one new feature and one bugfix:
- The new Autocreate feature is great for teams. It provides a single, central way to say to Source Search, “Whenever anyone opens this solution (or any solution under a given source directory), create an index automatically.” So you don’t have the whole team being prompted to create indexes – it just happens. See the “Index autocreation” section of the manual (down at the bottom of that page) to learn how it works. Thanks, Brett and Igor.
- The bugfix: Source Search is very careful not to interfere with any other process that want to read and write your source files. But there was a race condition – if a file was quickly opened for reading, closed, then opened again for writing, Source Search could get in the way and cause the write to fail. That loophole has now been closed. Thanks, Kurt.
As always, this upgrade is available for free to all licensed users, and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else. You can download it from the gallery or the download page.

It has been a pleasure to work with Richie on the autocreate feature. We have tested it exhaustively and it works great, just like the rest of Entrian Source Search. I can recommend it as a major time saver if you have an Enterprise level product with a large amount of source code. My searches used to take 30 seconds, now it is instant. Thanks Entrian!
