Enkive 1.4 RC2 released

We are pleased to announce that Enkive version 1.4 Release Candidate 2 is now available for download at http://enkive.org/community/download and at http://sourceforge.net/projects/Enkive

In this release we have made the following changes/improvements that users have requested:

Sort order bug fix
There was a bug in sort order for sorting by date, that resulted in dates near each other being in the wrong order. This is fixed, and dates sort correctly.

UI theming bug fix for paged results
Paged search results beyond the first page were not properly themed.

Large search improvements
MongoDB has an inherent limit on the size of un-indexed search results. When sorting a large search by a non-default key (e.g. date), this limit triggered, causing a Java backtrace to be displayed. The error is now a nice, user-understandable message. The results can now be paged up until the MongoDB limit is reached (rather than an immediate failure on sorting).

Improved init scripts
Upstart for Ubuntu
Proper sysv-init for Debian

New DocumentStore for attachments
For datasets with lots of attachments or large attachments, the limitations of MongoDB's GridFS were causing unacceptable performance. Since the trend is more mail with larger attachments, this needed to be addressed. A new document store was created that stores documents in the filesystem, indexed by MongoDB rather than in MongoDB directly. This resulted in a 5X speedup in document processing (and hence import).

Do take a test drive, and give us feedback!

Please note, this is a release candidate, and not a supported release. Deploy it only in test configurations.

The Release Candidate will be the final product, unless significant bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and regression tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bugs. This means that no entirely-new source code will be added to this release, but there could still be source code changes to fix defects, changes to documentation and data files, and peripheral code for test cases or utilities.

We truly appreciate your feedback. Please submit bug reports here: http://bugs.Enkive.org/
