Announcing the Microsoft iFilter Pack

For all you folks that have been waiting for Microsoft to release an iFilter pack for Office 2007 file formats, you wait is over.  Not only do we search Office 2007 files, but we've included support for crawling ZIP files, which I bet a lot people will take advantage of.  The complete list of iFilters in the download are:

• Metro (.docx, .docm, .pptx, .pptm, .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb)
• Zip (.zip)
• OneNote (.one)
• Visio (.vdx, .vsd, .vss, .vst, .vdx, .vsx, .vtx)

This iFilter pack will provide support for the following products:

• SPS 2003, MOSS 2007, Search Server 2008, Search Server 2008 Express
• WSS 2007
• Exchange 2005
• SQL 2005, SQL 2008
• Windows Desktop Search 3.01, WDS 4

This iFilter pack will provide support for x86 and x64 systems and all of the iFilters are multi-threaded to make crawling the content faster.  You can download the pack from the Microsoft download site.
