Indexing with Sphinx is pretty straightforward and a simple 3-line setup will normally work pretty well for you. But there always is room for improvement. So today, we have a collection of tips for you that cover a few dark corners in the indexing process that can be subject to such improvements: (better) ranged queries, throttling, data security when indexing over the network, and disk usage.

Today the Sphinx Team is proud to unveil the 2.0.5-release!
With 40+ fixes, the 2.0.5-release is the result of a moderately successful bug killing expedition led by the Sphinx Development Team. Driven by the feedback and bug reports from both our Community and Customers we’re close to finalizing the 2.0.x tree and thus setting the stage for the forthcoming 2.1.1 and subsequent 3.x series of releases.
