Dear Wiki user,

The "August2012" page has been changed by PrescottNasser:

Adding Lucene.Net

- (project add text here)
+ Lucene.Net was accepted into the Apache Incubator in February 2011.
+ Originally it was a sub project of the Lucene Project.
- Signed-off-by:
+ Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C# and
+ targeted at .NET runtime users. Lucene.Net has three primary goals:
+   - Maintain the existing line-by-line port from Java to C#, fully automating
+     and commoditizing the process such that the project can easily synchronize
+     with the Java Lucene release schedule.
+   - High-performance C# search engine library.
+   - Maximize usability and power when used within the .NET runtime. To that
+     end, it will present a highly idiomatic, carefully tailored API that
+     takes advantage of many of the special features of the .NET runtime.
+ Recent Activity:
+   - Voted to graduation (vote passed - we will now be sending our resolution to the board)
+ Current Activities:
+   - Lucene 3.0.3 has taken longer to get out the door than expected - originally
+     planned for June. We are still nearly ready to release, but we have added a
+     lot of functionality - compatibility with .NET 3.5 (which we removed for the 2.9.4
+     release). CLS compliance for usage with other .NET languages (like VB.NET). We have

+     also done a lot of cleanup work on the code base.
+   - Working through the graduation process and all the entails.
+ Long term goals:
+   - Have a nearly fully automated process to convert Java Lucene to C#.
+     (This has been a goal, but we are discussing if this is truly the best
+     idea of the project). MAY UPDATE: We have done some more investigative work
+     on this, but not much progress was made. AUGUST UPDATE: still unfortunately little
+     progress has been made
+   - Parity with Java Lucene (4.0). Planning for an interim 3.6 release before the 4.0.
+   - Have a new .NET version of Lucene utilizing .NET constructs and idioms. Much progress
+     was made on this (using properties vs GetXX/SetXX).
+ Graduation thought:
+   We are submitting our resolution to the board, the vote has passed in our Lucene.Net community
as well as
+   by the IPMC and incubator community.
+ Signed off by mentor:
