On 03 June 2011 Lucene and Solr commiters published a new, stable version of Lucene library and Solr search engine – both numbered 3.2. You should not expect revolution in terms of new functionalities, but there are few changes worth the look.

Changes:

  1. Lucene
    • A new grouping module (available under lucene/contrib/grouping)
    • A IndexUpgrader tool that let’s you upgrade your index to the new format
    • NRTCachingDirectory implementation which caches small segments in RAM
    • A new Collector implementation, CachingCollector, which helps developing functionalities which requires more than one pass
  2. Solr
    • Ability to specify overwrite and commitWithin as request parameters when using the JSON update format
    • Improvements to UIMA integration and Carrot2 library integration
    • Performance improvements of highlighting functionality
    • Jar file containing test-framework
    • Improvements from Apache Lucene 3.2
