This is a really useful addition and something people should check out. Only issue I ran into was using the SQL caching over the Internet. It slowed down the searches considerably. Turned off caching and all was well.

Great! Addition of enterprise library is also wonderful work. However, i couldnt see any logging calls in the source code, is that not included or is the latest code not uploaded yet?

It's really good but I had to take it off my search center pages because it took sometimes 7 seconds for the results to load if I had the search facets web part on the page. Once the facet web part was deleted the search results returned within a second. Also content types were returned for other portals. I have an external and internal site. Internal content types were showing on my external sit
