2.4.2 is the latest released version, and I believe there is a windows

2.4 IMO is a much better branch than 2.2 is.

I don't remember anyone saying it wasn't too difficult. But then, I have 
selective memory. :)

I think the issue is proximity-related *ranking* not searching. Which is 
on the short list of ranking features that we've discussed. I think the 
real issue is time: there seems to be a shortage amongst code-writers...
