** Description **
Ferret is a full-text search library which makes adding search to your
application a breeze. It's much faster than MySQL full-text search as
well most other search libraries out there. It allows you to do
Boolean (+ruby + rails -jewelry) and phrase queries ("the quick brown
fox") as well as some more unusual queries like fuzzy queries
(misspelling~ matches mispeling or misspellng), wildcard queries
(Aus?ral*), range queries (date:<=20050601) and a lot more. Ferret
also now offers query result highlighting and excerpting.
** Announcement **
I've just released Ferret 0.10.8. It has a security hole patched as
well as a couple other bug fixes. You should "gem update" ASAP.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank those who have been
kind enough to donate to the project. I really do appreciate the
support and so will all other Ferret users.
