OpenOffice Search 0.0.4 coming soon

Plans have changed slightly for OpenOffice Search 0.0.4. The plan was to introduce a plug-in system for different document types (OpenOffice, MS Office, Star Office, etc.). Instead, the next version will fix a bug with the stop list. It will also move the stop list and the database from the program directory to the current user's directory. Much of the code is also commented incorrectly or not commented at all. Version 0.0.4 will be fully commented. The indexing plug-in functionality has been delayed until 0.0.5.
