Comment (by afercia):

 Hello everyone. Reporting here a question raised on Slack:
 > about the new plugin search, will also the search "by author" be
 improved? Asking because currently you have to search for the author
 username to get some results and I guess most of the users they just don't
 know the author username. For example, if I search for "author:John
 Blackbourn" I don't get any results. But if I search for
 "author:johnbillion" I get 21 results.
 Unless I'm doing something wrong, seems something worth checking. Thanks!
