"Fixed a bug that caused temp files to build up while scanning MSG files on the filesystem"

This was the most annoying bug in the previous beta release that more than once filled up my complete disk - and it is fixed! Great work, thank you.

After testing it for a while I get the impression that this release is much more stable. Thank you X1 team for focusing on making X1 Search more reliable!

Anyone else think this version is also a lot faster than earlier betas?

By the way, the new one expires at the end of next January.

FWIW: I upgraded to this release and now X1 locks up. It starts ok, but whenever I try to do a search or anything at all, it locks up. Task manager does not show that it's "not responding," but X1 is frozen.

I'm uninstalling and reinstalling. Hopefully I won't have to wipe out the index since that'll take days to rebuild.

I reinstalled. It worked for a few searches, and now it's locked up again. FYI. FWIW. Task manager does not indicate there's a problem, but X1 is non-responsive.
