Re: MS Word (.doc) processing moved out of process

Well, to be specific, now the bad word files would not "crash" beagle anymore. 
If wv crashes, then it would crash the beagle-doc-extractor tool which runs 
outside of beagle. However, that means your doc file text won't get 
indexed :-(.

There are doc2text tools out there which can successfully extract text out of 
docs for which wv crashes - if you are using any of them in your external 
filter you might want to continue using them.

Test your doc files with beagle-extract-content or beagle-doc-extractor. If 
they work, good. If don't, keep using one of the other doc text extraction 
tool out there. But please a file a bug or leave a comment in the already 
filed bugs in wv bugzilla ( Those are bugs 
which should be fixed. The sooner the better.
