Fluent Search version

More Commands

You can now find new commands using the Command search app - Shutdown, Restart and Media Controls.

Auto Search Mappings

Fluent Search will can now automatically create search mappings based on historical usage, for example - "w" -> "whatsapp", when searching "w" the actual search will be "whatsapp".

The auto completion feature now has different visuals and will also work on part of the text, allowing inserting tags mid search easily.

Improved Search Delay

In order to reduce CPU usage, Fluent Search is delaying the search until you actually finish typing. In previous versions you could adjust the delay by choosing a static value (e.g. 100ms) or let Fluent Search adjust it automatically. With this version, Fluent Search will instantly search if you are searching for frequently used search or using Search Mapping.
