Faceted Search 2.5 released

There is a new release of the MOSS Faceted Search solution available. A summary of the new features:

  • Caching – dramatically improves performance and decreases the load on the search engine
  • Synchronization with Core
  • Search Results web part
  • Support for advanced search
  • Match of search counters
  • Introducing Parent-Child relationships
  • Extending search to logical “OR” queries
  • Simplified web part properties


There are some interesting plans for future releases as well:

"It’s my privilege to say that we have a team now that helps to shape new releases and brainstorm the future of the Faceted Search. In present we are looking at AJAX and SilverLight and hopefully you’ll start seeing more and more power of Facets in the near future."
