Hi,

This is part of our new search library. Base should not be in that list, that's a bug. =)

As for the others:

NONINDEXED - Supports +, -, "phrase searching", left and right substring searching and and/or searching. Can not sort by relevance. Basically turns your query into a full table scan of the table. Very useful for foreign languages where you can't break up a sentance into a series of words. It's fast for small databases, but gets progressively slower.

INTERNAL - Supports +, -, "phrase searching", right substring search and and/or searching. Returns most relevant results first. It indexes each term into a search table, and is considerably faster then NONINDEXED for large databases.

MYSQL - Uses MySQL's full text indexes. Supports +, -, and right substring searching. Can only search on 4 or more letter words. Returns most relevant results first. Quite fast, but requires MySQL 3.23+. Also search results seem a bit flaky some times.

We will include more docs about this in 2.1.0.

Cheers,

Alex
