SharePoint 2013 Search Query Tool v2.4 released


I decided it was time to release v2.4  of the query tool this morning. No major changed, but some UI improvements to collapse Connection and Advanced boxed to leave more room for search settings (courtesy of Dan Göran Lunde). You can now also resize the window down to 800x600 for those using low resolution screens or remote desktop sessions.
