Yes, the Aria engine (the new name for Maria engine) supports same
fulltext functionality as MyISAM.

Agree that for sophisticated indexing Sphinx (and maybe Solr, but I
don't know that one that well) is a a better choice.

That said, if you have a working setup and MyISAM/Aria does the
job, it's probably ok to continue using them. (Don't break a working
setup :)
