Convera Corporation announced version 8.1 of the company’s RetrievalWare search software platform. Version 8.1 is currently available on a limited basis with general release scheduled for next year. RetrievalWare 8.1 enables users to set customized content filters and alerts for the specific information they require to do their jobs, personalize their own unique query interface, and share search results from personal queries within Public Folders. To establish highly personalized, “always-on” search queries, a user can utilize the new Content Filter feature of RetrievalWare 8.1. For both commercial and government environments where vast amounts of information enter databases each day, a user can set very specific queries to automatically identify certain documents as soon as they enter the database. Key words selected by the user within the query immediately tag exact details within a document, isolate the document, and then route it to the users Personal Folder. Other new features include Alerting and Personalized Folder Sharing. Future RetrievalWare 8.1 capabilities planned include: Web Services APIs for .NET application development, JSR168 WebLogic Portlet; New industrial and manufacturing taxonomies and the Convera Workbench 3.0; New language detection, encoding detection and conversion, and Unicode compatibility.
