  • Unfortunately, we did not have the bandwidth to tackle this important feature for this coming release. As you know, we have been working very hard creating a new fully-integrated FT Engine for SQL 2008. The advantages of such integration are massive, but such technical challenge did not allow us to address this ‘customizable NEAR’ requirement, as well as many others we had in mind. These will need to wait until our next release.


    Be sure I will try to have it public as soon as possible, as we realize this is an important feature we are lacking at this point.
