Tatoeba update (October 4th, 2014)

Sphinx 2.1.9

We have upgraded the search engine to Sphinx 2.1.9. This fixes an issue where searching the word "why" would return no result, despite the fact that many sentences in the database use this word.

New sentences quickly available to search

You will no more have to wait weeks before you can find, through the search, a sentence that you have added. We know that many people have been wondering how come they cannot find a sentence that they have recently added, and the reason, in short, is because sentences need to be indexed before you can find them through the search. We couldn't index too often, because it would take too long, and too much resources.
But with the new server, and with gillux's work on implementing a "delta index", we can now provide search results that are much more up-to-date. New sentences will appear in the search results within an hour or less.

Sentences of a user visible to everyone

We have fixed a bug where the page listing the sentence of a specific user was only accessible to logged in users. The page is now visible to any user, logged in or not.
