Sinha on Speed and Relevance Improvements to Indian Kanoon

Dr. Sushant Sinha of Indian Kanoon has posted Faster and More Relevant Kanoon!, at the Indian Kanoon forums.

He writes:

A new release of IndianKanoon brings in the following changes:
1. A new tiering function that slims down the top tier and significantly improves the time taken to execute a query.
2. A new ranking function to improve relevance.
3. Improved word matching and abbreviations. A search of “adm jabalpur” will match “additional district magistrate jabalpur”

4. New operators ANDD, ORR and NOTT that can be used with words
5. Clicking on a document after a search query shows the contexts in the document in which the query appears.
6. Performance improvements coming from upgrade to Postgresql 9.2
