As some people have already discovered, we've released a plug-in we've 
called Wolfram Notebook Indexer for Google Desktop Search.  This plug-in 
allows GDS to index all of the Mathematica notebooks on your system, and 
does not require Mathematica to be installed.

This is a product which has, in some form or another, been in development 
and use for some time in-house.  In response to the enthusiasm a number of 
users have expressed, we decided to release a version early in the form of 
a public beta, which you can get here...

There's also a link to it from the Wolfram home page at

We don't have a schedule for a final release, yet.  We'll continue 
development on Wolfram Notebook Indexer (as well as various other related 
searching projects we haven't announced, yet) with the help of your 
feedback from the public beta.  As noted in the above link, bug reports and 
suggestions for Wolfram Notebook Indexer beta should be emailed to 
prerelease at
