Deprecation Notice

XMLSpider was replaced by Spider.


The XMLSpider plugin spiders freesites and builds an index usable by the Library and (deprecated) XMLLibrarian plugins for search. Most users should not run XMLSpider: those plugins only need the Freenet URI of an index, and do not need you to run the XMLSpider plugin locally.

The XMLSpider plugin is slow and uses a lot of memory. It is basically unsupported unless you are willing to do significant debugging work yourself. Running it has been known to cause a variety of strange problems.
