+Recoll is a personal full text search package with a QT graphical
+interface. It is based on a very strong backend (Xapian), for which it
+provides an easy to use and feature-rich interface.
+ * Free, GPL license.
+ * QT-based GUI.
+ * Supports the following document types (and their compressed versions):
+ - Natively: text, html, OpenOffice files, maildir and mailbox
+ (Mozilla and Thunderbird mail ok), gaim log files.
+ - With external helpers: pdf (pdftotext), postscript (ghostscript),
+ msword (antiword), rtf (unrtf).
+ * Powerful query facilities, with boolean searches, phrases, filter on
+ file types and directory tree.
+ * Support for multiple charsets. Internal processing and storage uses
+ Unicode UTF-8.
+ * Stemming performed at query time (can switch stemming language after
+ indexing)
+ * Easy installation. No database daemon, web server or exotic language
+ necessary.
+ * An indexer which runs either as a thread inside the GUI or as an
+ external, cron'able program.
