GitHub has announced the general availability of a ground-up rework of code search that has been in development for years.
The changes include substantial new functionality that is significantly more aware of context. The company says its new code search is "about twice as fast" as the old code search and that it "understands code, putting the most relevant results first."
That's on top of redesigned search and code view interfaces. The new search interface offers suggestions and completions, and categorizes and formats the results more intelligently.
