Updates discontinued for SQLite and PostgreSQL
1 December 2018 - The decision was made not to produce any new updates for the SQLite and PostgreSQL forks of Sphider. They are frozen at release 2.1.0. There just hasn't been sufficient demand to make the time and effort required to maintain these "novelties" worthwhile. User support will still be provided via the forum.
