New search live on www.postgresql.org

Today I finally got around to cleaning up the final things, and activating the new tsearch2 based search engine for www.postgresql.org. Other than Stefan finding an escaping bug (hello magic_quotes, you should be off) and one encoding bug (yes, even though everything is utf-8 everywhere, you still have to explicitly tell htmlentities that it should be utf-8), things are looking good. The load on the search machine is way down, mainly because the indexing part of aspseek loaded things up horribly. The search itself wasn't too bad, and it's not too bad now either.

So, feel free to pound it a bit, and let me know if there are issues.

Oh, and yes, I'll be doing a complete writeup on it. Eventually :-)

Update: As Devrim so kindly informed me, I forgot to credit him. He of course helped me rsync some changes to the archives box at commandprompt, but most importantly he restored from backup the file that I accidentally removed even though it wasn't in CVS. So - thanks Devrim, couldn't have done it without you!
