Awasu 2.4.3.alpha1

IMPORTANT: This is an alpha release (what's this?). Some features may not be complete and there will probably be bugs!

You must be already running 2.4.1 or 2.4.2

To install:

IMPORTANT: Awasu has been upgraded to use MSXML6, a Microsoft component that Awasu uses for advanced features such as XSL transformations and metadata modules. If you are running on Vista or Windows 7, it will be already installed but if you are on XP or earlier, you will have to install it manually by downloading and running msxml.msi (or msxml_x64.msi) from here.

 

Search result filtering

Search results can now be filtered by URL by including something like this in the query:

    site:awasu.com
Due to the nature of the content of some feeds, and the common use of third-party services to deliver feeds, Awasu will also check the feed URL of the channel that items came from, and also the channel's home URL (if the publisher has specified one). So, the clause above will only include items in search results that meet one or more of the following conditions: To turn this extra checking off and limit results to only items that link to awasu.com, include the following clause in the query:
    smartsite:no

Site filtering can also be reversed, to show only results not at awasu.com, like this:

    !site:awasu.com

 

Search results can also be filtered by channel folder by including the following clause in a query:

    folder:...
where ... is either a folder GUID or a regular expression that is used to match folder names. If you don't want to worry about regex's, any substring of the folder name will do e.g.folder:foo will match any folder that has "foo" in its name. If there are spaces in the folder name, it must be quoted:
    folder:"Developing nations"

By default, sub-folders will also be checked, so if you want to disable this and match folders exactly, include the following clause in the query:

    subfolders:no

As with URL's, folder matching can also be reversed:

    !folder:...

 

Creating and updating reports

The HTTP API can now be used to create new reports, and updated existing ones. Full details are here.

The existing $/reports/list API entry point has also been updated to return all information about each report.
