Version 7.2 of the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia is coming soon, as a sort of Christmas present from me to you. Although the amount of new content will be small (compared to the rest of the V7 series, anyway), there will be some big changes to the layout and functionality of the site. Among the changes are:
Enhanced Search, which will allow a greater flexibility of search parameters, more combinations of parameters, and en extension of the current Categories capability. This will finally take advantage of all the fields that are in the database.
Return to Classic Mode, which will forego the simple list of entries and categories, and simply display the text for all selected entries. The new-fangled listing rarely worked, and caused more trouble than it was worth.
Entry Details, which will replace the new-fangled entry description page. By clicking on the entry name in the classic mode display, you will be presented with more details (where available) on the entry. Over time, this will provide a way to have more images, more details on sources, and links to related entries elsewhere in the encyclopedia.
More images, especially to original trilogy content
I will try to maintain the current level of downloads, but it's getting harder and harder to generate all that content. As the encyclopedia grows, so does the size and processing time for each download. With the download data that I have from the servers, I know that there are many files that are just not getting downloaded all that often, and so it's becoming less necessary to produce them.
I hope that everyone has the happiest of holidays this season, and I look forward to sharing more information with you in the new year.
