Hi all,
I think I did now finally understand what some of you meant by
removing duplicates in the list. Therefore, I have added such a
feature in SWI 2.7.0.

Thank you Nikolaus, this is much better!

About the search feature, though. Searching for GPS, PDF, FTP or
GNUstep does not return anything. Do you know why that is? Searching

it uses the MySQL full-text search and as far as I know this algorithm has problems with short abbreviations. Maybe we should mix standard and full-text search somehow.

for "sheet" does not return FlexiSheet as expected, but instead
returns ToyViewer which has the word somewhere in its description.

I will have a look into it asap.

Could the Filter by OS/Model options be removed since they do not apply?

Yes. It remains from the code base which was a redesign of www.killefiz.de This should definitively be more configurable.

There is only one small bug - the number of records in the database
categories shown to the left below the GNUstep Software Index logo is
wrong (since I have not yet found the right SELECT statement to count
but eliminate duplicate names in one step). That is something for

I see you have already fixed this and released 2.7.1. This is an
important point because the list on the left gives an overview of how
many apps, frameworks, etc are available. It was really weird when it
said e.g Framework(30), and this was the number of releases, not the
number of products.

Not all categories are listed, however. At least Applications is
missing, which is a shame. Could the list be made dynamic to avoid
this problem? Maybe also add a Game category?

They should automatically add as soon as an application is put into these categories. But I have to take a look if the selection popup allows to do that.


PS: there is also an XML .plist "feed" for automatic analysis of products and releases.
