December 2018 Release Notes

Improvements

  • We integrated with Bing v7 and transitioned our customers to this newer version.
  • We now will index content on a domain even if the root of that domain lists a different domain as the canonical domain. For example, https://publications.example.gov may list https://www.example.gov as the canonical domain, but still serve content from https://publications.example.gov/reports/first_report.pdf. We can now index https://publications.example.gov/reports/first_report.pdf`.
  • We updated our job search location feature to show more job openings, and cleaned up how we send job queries to the USAJOBS api to get more results.
  • We now automatically review URLs for reindexing, checking for 404s and 301s. We’re doing this every 30 days to begin with, and will adjust that timeframe as needed.

Fixes

  • We upgraded the Ruby version on the repo for our Search.gov website, and asis, our image indexing repo.
  • We upgraded the activejob Ruby gem across repos.
