New Improved SL Marketplace

Several months ago we reported about resident's most troublesome problems concerning SL's Marketplace.  Their search engine was the biggest complaint.  Type in say "apple" and everything from clothing, weapons to designer's that have the word apple in their names would show up.  Even choosing the correct category didn't help much.
Finally, after months in beta stage, the new and improved marketplace is up and running.  Linden Lab has updated the old infrastructure that was supporting search. "Part of the new search is a learning algorithm that will further improve search results with time - the more it’s used, the better it performs." 
You can now use words like "not" or "and" in the description to better your search.  LL claims that the new and improved infrastructure will be faster and more accurate for a better marketplace.  This is good news for both the resident shopper and merchants.
