No updates yet. Been heads down with relevance improvements and a few features that a couple of Algolia enterprise customers who are switching over have asked for 😄

Biggest one is the ability to specify an override (Algolia calls this query rule), to say if someone searches for, eg “white dress”, automatically apply white as a color filter then do a text search only for “dress”.

Both Algolia and Typesense by default do a text based search for all query terms. But now with a rule like this, you can return much more relevant results for your specific dataset
