Sitecore 6: Improved search in the client (1/2)

We received a lot of great feedback about the internal Sitecore Search. Today I’ll show you what we’ve done to make sure that the Search in Sitecore 6 will be used as a way to really navigate through your content.

New shared source module: Sitecore URI Translation

For a prospect customer I’ve created a prototype where the URLs where translated in Sitecore. As this solution was pretty much well-designed and documented, I’ve decided to share it with the rest of the world.
The solution is designed for Sitecore 5.3 and does take advantage of the C# 3 features.

You can find the module here, inclusive architecture overview, code samples, known issues and installation guide:
