Tsearch 84

Tsearch for PostgreSQL 8.4

From our TODO list:

Some information is available in our PGCon 2008 presentation

The bottom line for text search are:

  • now GIN index is usable in fast changing environment (in the past we recommended GiST index)
  • you can use prefix search in queries, like to_tsquery('supernov:*a & stars') and it costs nothing !

We also plan to work on flexible management of dictionaries, incomplete search.
