Searchmonkey GTK Edition 0.8.3

Searchmonkey is different to other desktop search engines. Users can search for file names and contents using powerful regular expressions. This enables Searchmonkey to be much more precise when it returns hits. In addition, searchmonkey doesn't just show you a list of files that might contain what you are looking for, it helpfully displays the content with the matches highlighted

0.8.313 Feb 2018 10:33 major feature: 1. Bugs ------------- 1.1 Fixed --------- 1.1.1- when the size of text preview is too large, the highlighting is misplaced - this bug is known by Adam : DONE 1.1.2- word wrapping isn't effective : DONE 1.1.3- all advanced options (expert mode) aren't sometimes effective ; why ? Because if the notebook isn't opened on position #2, those options are inactives ! Now, even if notebook is in position #3, those options are ACTIVES. DONE 1.1.4- sometimes, even if the option 'show line contents' activated, Searchmonkey show ONLY one line : DONE (seems linked to somewhat with wizard , if the wizard is activated, even for nothing, BEFORE research, the display is correct !) 1.1.5- reactivated "limit content hits" options in notebook's option panel. DONE 1.1.6- option 'simple search syntax' isn't activatable : reactivated. DONE 1.1.7- when "extra lines" for "containing text search" is activated, the highlighting was misplaced : DONE 1.1.8- found a "cool" bug mistmach between Kilo-bytes and Mega-bytes file size display : DONE 1.1.9- isn't really a bug, but under /configuration preferences and systeme calls in dialog if we want that the web browser is called correctly, the correct syntax is (for example Firefox : /usr/bin/firefox and the parameter only f) ; fixed by remobe the "new-tab" string. DONE 1.1.10- With the "Test Regular expressions" dialog, the highlighting is wrong (shifted) with accented chars (i.e. chars with more than ONE byte by char) ; it's not critical, but annoying. DONE 2. Improvements --------------- 2.1 Done -------- 1- changed application's icons to a more "flat" style : DONE - remove all deprecated symbols and function inside Gtk (widgets) (compatible with gtk =2.24) : DONE - modify main window title acording to user's research : DONE - now the searched containing text is really highlighted with a yellow backgound : DONE 5- the color dialog now changes the BACKGROUND color for highlighting, like a 'Stabilo pen' : DONE -- SIC --
