Xapian is one of the indexation/search engines I'm planning on integrating to Dokeos instead of the current indexation/search engine that we have at the moment: MnoGoSearch. There are many reasons for that change:
- MnoGoSearch server is not GPL under Window, which makes it impossible for us to ship as part of Dokeos
- MnoGoSearch has crappy support mailin-lists
- MnoGoSearch's packages in various distributions are not maintained
- Xapian has *many* interfaces in many languages, all regularly maintained.
