Attention to people searching in Greek, Tamil, Basque, Hindi, Arabic, Catalan, Nepali, Irish and Lithuanian.

In the past, searching in these languages only returned exact matches. Now, similar words will also match. This feature is called stemming.

For example, in English, which has stemming enabled, searching for "like" will also find sentences including likes, likely, liked, etc. Prefixing a word with an equal sign (for example =like) will only return exact matches.

I wonder if the stemming algorithm used to stem Arabic could be used as-is for other Arabic varieties.

Tested it for Hindi and it works well. I hope one day we'll have Marathi stemming too!
