AcidSearch 0.4 Preview

The AcidSearch 0.4 preview is finally done. This preview is identical to the final version in features. It is only available in English and may contain bugs, however. Use at your own risk (it is possible, though fairly unlikely, that this version could crash Safari). Please post any problems you may have (or send them to me via email). Comments and other feedback are appreciated as well! Download AcidSearch 0.4 Preview here.

New features in this version include:

This version also is the first to use SparkPlug instead of SIMBL.

UPDATE: I have reverted to using SIMBL for the time being until I get a few issues ironed out in SparkPlug. Apparently it does not work for some users. The problem is, I'm unable to reproduce these issues, even when installing on three different computers. Once I figure it out I will return to using SparkPlug. If you had an issue with AcidSearch not working before, please use the old installer to uninstall (if you still have it) and redownload.

UPDATE 02/11: I have posted a new version with a few bug fixes, and some other modifications, which should hopefully allow those of you who had problems with the previous versions to use AcidSearch. It uses SparkPlug again. If you do have problems, please state what localization you use normally, as well as whether or not you have used AcidSearch before. It would also be great if you emailed me your console log, which you get by running Applications/Utilities/Console.app. Thank you.

Does not install right on the latest version of OS X and safari. It will go though the installation and say it was successful but when Safari opens it shows a normal search menu instead of the choices of search engines.

The installer doesn't work properly. I got the same problem Patrick is pointing out here. The installer doesn't even contain SparkPlug in its Resouces folder.
But the new version of AcidSearch is working perfect after I installed it manually. Thanks! and hope this problem will be fixed soon.

Not having any luck either.
It installs the
/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/AcidSearch.bundle
but I get nothing in:
0.34 works fine though.

Tested with a new user, zero problem until I tried to add one of the babelfish channels. This lead to a weird behaviour of the edit channel window, even if the channel itself was working. When I opened the edit window again and I tried to delete the channel, Safari (1.2.4) crashed. Upon reopening, no trace of Acidesearch, only the defualt search
