The latest version of K4 adds Lucene-based, full-text search engine
vjoon GmbH, which specializes in software for professional digital content management, has released version 6.7 of the cross-media publishing platform vjoon K4.
This latest version boosts the software's integrated DAM capabilities with a high-performance search engine and "lazy loading" so that extensive search results are ranked by relevance and displayed on the fly, says vjoon GmbH CEO Andreas Schrader. It searches all publishing content — layouts, images, text objects and metadata — in a matter of seconds, he adds.
What's more, hits are ranked according to a relevance criterion as of this version. Content containing more frequent mentions of the keywords are presented first to the user. In addition, a stemming algorithm extends the query to encompass all variations on the root of the keyword used in the search. These root morpheme-based searches can also be employed for language-specific purposes.
The manner in which search results are displayed has also been revised. As of this version, a technique called lazy loading ensures hits are displayed much faster when scrolling. With the benefit of this feature, only those hits shown in the search window are loaded and displayed. Residual data will only be loaded if they are to be displayed in the search window. This pares the data stream down to the essentials, lightens the server's computing load and presents results that much faster, says Schrader.
This release is available now to vjoon integration partners. It will be rolled out to customers worldwide pursuant to a coordinated schedule. Go to www.vjoon.com for more info.
