HouseSpider 4.3 released

I'm happy to announce this new release.
Since the notes/changes field doesn't work I'll post it here.

NOTES:
This is version 4.3 developed by Hans Fr. Nordhaug. As usual
I recommend upgrading... If you only want the applet (and don't need
the source code) just download "housespider-4.3-jars.tar.gz".

CHANGES:

For version 4.3 - 20.09.2002 - General improvements (by Hans Fr. Nordhaug)
- Much improved treatment of pages using framesets.
- Much improved search functionality: phrases, exclude words
and logical expression.
- Changed searching of index file. The applet now searches the joint
string of line 1 and 2, i.e., body text and title.
- Changed use of index file. Line 1 now contains only the body text;
everything inbetween <head> and </head> is ignored especially the
title which was (and is) repeated in line 2. This decreases the size
of the index file.
- Added status line (for index file) to applet. Added parameter to turn
the status line off. Added search/index progress to the status line.
- Added debug parameter to applet. (0 - no debugging, 3 - full debugging.)
- Added documentation URL parameter to applet.
- Added Make.bat. Makefile for Windows.
- Added applet parameter bgtextcolour and texcolour... read more
