Software Update: Everything – Computer – Downloads

Version 1.5 is available as alpha (not beta, so). New features are added or expanded almost daily.
You can count on version 1.5 to gain alpha status for at least another year, probably a year and a half.
(Source: I’m the admin on the Everything forum and ‘talk to’ the developer regularly)

However, the current version is already very stable. After the first week after rendering, any bugs are rarely reported and what is reported – usually about weird settings – gets fixed very quickly (think hours, not days).

I’m totally over 1.5. Completely hassle free. Hundreds of new features also work without problems.
(1.4 I still have it on the system to answer forum questions)

Version 1.5 also has the ability to index file contents. This is then stored in the database. As a result, a text search also yields instant results. Well, that’s amazingly fast.
The disadvantage is that the entire database is loaded into memory (RAM). So indexing 10GB of PDFs/Office documents/code/… will lead to problems with 4GB of RAM…
So you have to think carefully about the files you are indexing by content.
Everything 1.5 also has the ability to query the Windows indexing database using the si:search function.
So if you let Windows Index index the rest of the file’s contents – this database is stored “on disk”, you have the best of both worlds.

Another alternative is Dangerous. This person can use it all to find file names very quickly and search for content (not indexed by the way).
