Subject Re: [lucy-dev] [ANNOUNCE] Apache Lucy 0.1.0 (incubating)
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 03:06:59 GMT
Congratulations, everyone on reaching this outstanding milestone!  I hope and believe Lucy
has a long, illustrious future ahead of it.

As good as Lucene is, having a search technology built on a more universally compatible code
base will make it much easier to be widely adopted.  I can see Lucy someday built into most
operating systems, powering search in apps like email clients and IDEs, and being the core
of system-wide search technology like whatis or Apple's Spotlight.

Thanks for all your hard work, and I look forward to seeing the great things that are to come.
