What stage are you currently in ?

Is an update to 'everything' coming soon ? (soon as in within a month)

Have you done any more thinking on making this an open source project ?
I can help you set it up.

I still have much to implement before the next release.

No.

I will make that decision after the next release.
I can help you set it up.
I will keep this in mind, thanks.

I was afraid of that.

I have lost patience of waiting (2 years and counting).
Since you haven't open sourced the project by now i'm guessing the probability of you ever doing it is very low.
So i have decided to implement my own light version just to get rid of the bugs that haunt me.

Can you describe or provide code snippets of how you made the searching of the usn journal so fast ?

Never-mind, found the answer, quite simple. :oops:

How do you structure up the database for fast path generation and retrieval ?
Do you pre-compute the paths in advance and store the in memory or is it the way the database structure is in memory ? I assume it is the latter.

Any feedback you can provide will be useful.

It's just a prototype. I made it to learn how the usn journal works while i wait on a response from 'void' (To privately help him, to speed things up).

I'm currently working on the user-interface. I really do despise UI programming.
I do not know when i'll have a usable *very* alpha version ready. I'm writing this in my spare time so the progress is slow but steady.

Writing a program like 'Everything' from scratch takes time and would also be a waste of time if 'void' ever decides to releases the source code for 'Everything'. :roll:
Hopefully he will soon.

As we all know, reinventing the wheel isn't productive nor interesting. :(

I'll upload an alpha version when i get the ui working.

A bit of teasing ;) :

Ok. Thanks for your response! And yes i agree with you especially in the "reinventing the wheel isn't productive nor interesting". :D

Keep working and good luck, anyway Everything despite the lack of new versions still Rules Them All! :twisted: And try make a better alternative is a herculean work. ;)
