It's been in beta testing for a while, but now it's live. Now I can type in "DBI" and the DBI module is at the top of the results! I used to have to dig for it. Same for CGI. It's much faster too. Swish-E, the search engine behind it, has been great on the projects we've used it on, and I'm glad to see it powering CPAN now.
Not sure if this was Graham Barr or Ask Bjorn Hansen or someone else, but whoever it was, thank you! This is a great improvement for CPAN search.
