Subject RE: Call for features in next release
Date Thu, 23 May 2002 20:43:23 GMT
I know voting has started, but I just thought of this...

How about a compressed index option?  Something simple like delta or golomb coding would be
fine... There's a java implementation of a variant at:
http://www.usenix.org/publications/login/2000-4/features/java.html

It'll be a performance hit, but I'm dealing with enormous indexes and saving space would help.
 A compressed index would be especially helpful in the initial (pre-optimization) index building
since that takes up major disk space.  A user could then unroll the optimized/compressed index
into a standard uncompressed one.

Subject: Call for features in next release


Hi,

I would like be able to have the features that we are planning on having for
the next release.

So far this seems to be:

    Vector Term Support
    Support for Search Term Highlighting

Do people have any other functionality they are thinking of adding?

Thanks

--Peter
