    BETHESDA, Md., July 18 /PRNewswire/ -- dtSearch Corp., a leading
 supplier of enterprise and developer text retrieval software, announces a
 native 64-bit beta version of the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for Win &
 .NET. The dtSearch Engine lets developers add dtSearch's "terabyte indexer"
 search functionality and file format support to Web-based and other
 applications. The product (both 32-bit and 64-bit beta) also adds
 preliminary MS Word 2007 and Excel 2007 support to the existing list of
 supported file types.
     dtSearch Engine, developer overview. The dtSearch Engine makes
 available dtSearch's "terabyte indexer" search functionality and file
 format support through .NET 2.0 and other APIs. The product provides over
 two dozen search options, with hit-highlighted display. The product also
 supports distributed or federated searching across multiple data sources,
 and includes .NET 2.0 API access to dtSearch's built-in Web Spider. All
 dtSearch Engine features have been ported to 64-bit in the beta.
     Terabyte indexer. Like the rest of the dtSearch product line, the
 dtSearch Engine can index over a terabyte of text in a single index -- as
 well as create and simultaneously search an unlimited number of indexes.
 Indexed search time is typically less than a second, even across terabytes
 of data.
     Supported file types. After a search, dtSearch can display HTML, XML
 and PDF files with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links and
 formatting intact. dtSearch uses built-in proprietary HTML converters for
 browser display of non-Web-ready content (MS Office, OpenOffice, ZIP, CSV,
 Unicode, and other popular file types) with highlighted hits.
     Database and fielded data support. In addition to searching fields in
 all supported file types, the dtSearch Engine offers hit-highlighted
 precision search options for ODBC, XML and SQL-type databases, including
 support for BLOB data. The dtSearch Engine also has extensive support for
 adding on-the- fly classification information and other fields to documents
 during indexing.
     dtSearch Spider. The dtSearch Engine includes full access to dtSearch's
 built-in Spider functionality through a .NET/.NET 2.0 API. The Spider
     -- public sites, secure content HTTPS, password-accessible sites, and
        forms-based authentication
     -- searching of Web-based content to any specified level of horizontal or
        vertical depth
     -- searching of static content (HTML, XML, PDF, etc.) as well as dynamic
        content (ASP.NET, MS CMS, SharePoint, etc.), with WYSWYG display of
        native Web-based content with highlighted hits
     -- integrated relevancy-ranking of Spidered and non-Spidered content (all
        with highlighted hits)
     Search types; international language support. The dtSearch product line
 offers over two dozen indexed and unindexed search options. These include:
 fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and
 spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus (both through a built-in
 thesaurus and through optional user-defined synonym rings), boolean
 (and/or/not), natural language relevancy ranking (by hit term frequency,
 density and rarity), positional scoring ranking, phrase, phonic, wildcard,
 bilateral proximity, directed proximity, stemming, numeric range,
 user-defined variable term weighting, and special forensics options. The
 dtSearch product line also provides international language support through
 Unicode, covering hundreds of international languages.
     dtSearch product line. In addition to the dtSearch Engine for Win &
 .NET, the dtSearch product line also includes: dtSearch Desktop with
 Spider, for instantly searching files on a PC (or on PC-accessible network
 drives); dtSearch Network with Spider, for network-based searching;
 dtSearch Web with Spider, for quickly publishing a large volume of
 instantly searchable data to an Internet or Intranet site; dtSearch
 Publish, for publishing an instantly searchable document collection to CD,
 DVD, portable harddrive, and the like; and the dtSearch Engine for Linux,
 for making available dtSearch search functionality through C++ and Java
 APIs for Linux programmers.
