Searching Upgrade

The final candidate build of MacJournal 2.6 is still in the any-day-now phase, but in the mean time I had the opportunity this past week to implement one more small feature. When searching for an entry, words are now considered separately. So the order of the words doesn't really matter any more. This also helps when searching for dates, as you can just search for "16 July" to get everything from July 16th. There is one additional feature in there: to group words together into phrases, use quotation marks. To get the previous behavior, enclose the whole string in quotation marks. There won't be any Boolean operator support (AND, OR, or NOT) in 2.6, so don't ask. Everything is AND for now.
