In addition to the larger database, several advanced searching options are now available. Here's a review.

1) Ability to Limit By Language
Here's the Syntax:
lang:fr = French
lang:es = Spanish
lang:it = Italian
lang:no = Norwegian
lang:da = Danish
lang:pt = Portuguese
lang:de = German
lang:nl = Dutch
2) More Syntax
3) Dynamic Descriptions Are Now Available
In other words, your search terms in context.
4) Coming Soon:
Spell Check (Will Also Be Available at Ask.Com)
Advanced User Interface
Let's hope all of this good stuff keeps coming in addition to Teoma keeping the database up to date. It looks like the current database was crawled about 6 weeks ago.

Finally, oficial word from Teoma that the database has been increased to about 350 million pages with more enlargements on the way. We'll have to see how the new Teoma dbase does in the next one of Greg's tests.
