RDig 0.2.1

 |  search, rdig, ferret, ruby

With this release, RDig, my Ferret-based all-in-one site search solution ;-) , can index PDF and MS Word files, too.

RDig delegates all the hard work to the pdftotext and wvHtml command line utilities, so you need to have the xpdf-utils and wv packages installed to use this feature.

Also it should be easier now to plug in custom content extractors as they will be auto-discovered and used for the content-types they declare to be able to handle.

As always, any feedback is very welcome.
