Copernic Desktop Search Releases!

We’ve been pretty quiet lately but you must have guessed we were preparing something… How about not one, but two new Copernic Desktop Search versions in the same day?

1) CDS v1.7: This latest official release of CDS brings very interesting things to the table: many nice additions to the IE toolbar (RSS feed reader and scrolling ticker, keyword-seeking buttons, etc.), brand new network deployment features for system administrators, and more! Read more...

CDS 1.63 Released: Built-in OpenOffice Document Support, Firefox 1.5 Toolbar

A new version of CDS has been released yesterday and it features one main addition: full content indexing of OpenOffice.org (1.1, 2.x) and StarOffice (7.x and 8.x) documents. Supported file types include Writer text documents, Impress presentations and Calc spreadsheets.

Because of the rapidly growing popularity of these open source office productivity suites – mainly due to the impressive latest upgrades – we decided to add support for OpenDocument files right into the base product, instead of releasing a plug-in which users have to install separately.

New CDS v1.61 Now Released

Even though we know you’re patiently waiting for our next big release, CDS 2.0, we thought that in the meantime you would appreciate a little treat. This update, v1.61, is mainly a maintenance release which fixes a few bugs (hey, it happens!) and improves performance.

There are still a few new features worth noting: all non-password-protected Outlook Express identities are now indexed (instead of only the default one); Word, Excel, PDF, RTF and PowerPoint file handlers have been updated for better compatibility; and the last used category is now definitely more visible in the deskbar than before (Ed, I think you’ll be happy about this :)).

We are in the process of recruiting Beta testers, so if you are interested, so are we! Read more...
