Interesting stuff I found today:

Qweery Search - based on a Dutch public search engine, has some interesting tweaks based on sales conversions, clicks and feedback.

Woosh - a Python search engine, originally for help systems. Features include fielded search, fast indexing and search, pluggable API (for relevance scores, text analysis, etc.), query language and spellchecker. Free and open-source, based on some other open-source engines.

Xappy wrapper for the Xapian open source search engine. The elsdoerfer blog shows how to integrate with django And the xapian blog has a speed comparison with Woosh

A low-cost commercial robtots.txt generator from BasiSoft (not the same as text analysis company Basis Technology)

Doug Lenat was positively impressed with Wolfram Alpha -- particularly good on country and stock price information, temperatures, cities, currencies, chemical compound names and measurements (such as 10cm/year). He says it has beautiful graphs and tables in the results page (http://www.semanticuniverse.com)

Sorry it took me so long, but it is interesting. Did you make any special improvements in non-Roman searching?

No. This is result of my search algorithm, it doesn't use language specific improvements.

Just wondering. I'm not really covering desktop search these days, you should definitely send announcements to places like PC Week and the consumer-oriented magazines and web sties. Best o fluck!

Program (version 1.4) is not ready for everyday usage for ordinary user... it has several features and original search/index algorithm. May be only next versions of StopKa be ready for common use.
You suggest "PC Week and the consumer-oriented magazines and web sties"
Do you know some addresses? May be latter I'll use it to promote.
BTW, could you blog about StopKa when new version be ready?
