Nothing else has changed with my installation other than updating to 4.0d Beta 1.

The full index 4.0d Beta performed on my desktop was a little quicker than under 4.0c. You should get a better idea what is happening from the logos4Indexer.log.

Andy Bell:
As Logos provides many gb of resources, the large download is inevitable. However, a plain vanilla base package install (with no other resources involved) could provide a pre-built index, with a quick check post download to check that this index matches the installed resources. And there ought to be a way of adding extra resources to the index without needing a total reindex (although such functionality may exist?)

A second (supplemental) index is created for new and updated resources, so indexing for those resources takes minutes instead of hours. When it grows to a certain size a full re-index will be performed.

A pre-built downloadable index has some merit for a base library product to a new user provided one has the download budget and line speed! It could even be provided via DVD if Logos issues them in conjunction with a new version of L4. It could cater for a few variables (eg. some existing resources) but there is no guarantee that a service release or resource update will not require a full re-index. The re-introduction of Merge in the 4.0d beta looks promising and will greatly reduce the need for a full re-index as mentioned in the first paragraph. But with promised "missing" features still to be released I doubt that this feature will be considered before the 4th quarter.
