Blinkx 2.0 Now Available

From PC Advisor:

This weekend saw the release of a new version of the Blinkx search software, which now creates special folders in users' PCs about specific topics and automatically populates them with documents grabbed from users' hard drives and from the internet. The feature, called Smart Folders, is the highlight of Blinkx 2.0, the newest version of this internet and desktop search tool, which is available as a free download from the start-up company's website at http://www.blinkx.com.

Blinkx 2.0 also has a feature called SIS, an acronym for the phrase Stuff I've Seen, which maintains a record of viewed files. Blinkx 2.0 also adds support for querying peer-to-peer networks.

I just downloaded the new version. I'll spend some time time testing it out. Stay tuned.
