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
wvHtml command line utilities, so you need to have the
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.
