Windows Desktop Search 3.01 Released

It’s been a long time since I posted, so I figured I’d de-lurk and mention that we just shipped Windows Desktop Search 3.01 to the world today. Brandon has many of the details, but the short release notes include built-in support for indexing networked volumes, more group policy support, and a smorgasbord of bug fixes. My personal favorite fix: in WDS 3.0, some users would click the search button in the deskbar, only to have their C:\ drive open instead of search results – but only the first time they tried.
