I read this section of the release notes for 5.2 with dismay: "the search results no longer favours labels". This is going to make it much harder for me to optimise my page for specific search results.
For example, let's say I have a page about "blue_widgets". In my organisation. "blue_widgets" and "red_widgets" are two separate products, so they have separate wiki pages. But the products are related, so I have added "blue_widgets" as a label on the "red_widgets" page and vice versa.
Old result: a search for "blue_widgets" returns both pages, with the "red_widgets" page ranked below the "blue_widgets" page. That's the behaviour I expect. New result: the "red_widgets" page doesn't appear in the results at all.
My workaround is to add a heading using the related terms to the page itself. Something along the lines "red_widgets: see also blue_widgets". But that means editing dozens of pages which I have already optimised for the old search. Does anyone have a more elegant workaround? Or is there a page where I can vote for search to be reverted to the old functionality?
