The latest release of dataquery (version 1.11.0) comes with the capacity of performing fulltext searches, provided – of course – that the underlying database itself has such capability and that fulltext indices have been defined. The score calculated by the database can be retrieved and used for sorting.
Other extensions were updated too. For datafilter the only change is that the manual was moved to reStructuredText. Extension templatedisplay gained several improvements in the area of debugging and error reporting. In particular an exception occurring in a content object used for rendering will no longer crash the whole Data Consumer.
