New release of MSDN/TechNet Search, Profile and Forums
The team I'm working on just released our latest version of MSDN/TechNet Search, Profile and Forums.
For Search this is the latest release and includes the following new features (http://search.msdn.microsoft.com/):
- Auto-complete hit highlighting. Now if you search for "writeline" you'll see all words that contain that phrase. The terms are also now ordered by the number of times we see a certain term requested.
- Stackable refinements: after you search and we identify which topic and/or source contain your search term you can now click on multiple topic and/or source refinements and stack them to narrow your search further.
- We have increased the number of correct results for a search term with new algorithms, so hopefully you'll find your information even faster!
- This is a new application that will drive your profile for things like search, forums and other apps to come. So, if you have a live ID go ahead and sign up here to reserve a display name and upload an avatar!
- Sam Jarawan created a tutorial video you can watch here that describes all the features: http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=en-us&vid=0f50cc69-28ac-44cd-8277-aae119d5d7cd
