+<p>The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 4.8.0</p>
+<p>Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
+library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly
+any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.</p>
+<p>This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and
+improvements, some of which are highlighted below. The release
+is available for immediate download at:
+  <a href="http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html">http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html</a></p>

+with the release for a full list of details.</p>
+<h3 id="lucene-480-release-highlights">Lucene 4.8.0 Release Highlights:</h3>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Apache Lucene now requires Java 7 or greater (recommended is
+  Oracle Java 7 or OpenJDK 7, minimum update 55; earlier versions
+  have known JVM bugs affecting Lucene).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Apache Lucene is fully compatible with Java 8.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>All index files now store end-to-end checksums, which are
+  now validated during merging and reading. This ensures that
+  corruptions caused by any bit-flipping hardware problems or bugs
+  in the JVM can be detected earlier.  For full detection be sure
+  to enable all checksums during merging (it's disabled by default).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene has a new Rescorer/QueryRescorer API to perform second-pass
+  rescoring or reranking of search results using more expensive scoring
+  functions after first-pass hit collection.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>AnalyzingInfixSuggester now supports near-real-time autosuggest.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Simplified impact-sorted postings (using SortingMergePolicy and
+  EarlyTerminatingCollector) to use Lucene's Sort class
+  to express the sort order.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Bulk scoring and normal iterator-based scoring were separated,
+  so some queries can do bulk scoring more effectively.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Switched to MurmurHash3 to hash terms during indexing.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>IndexWriter now supports updating of binary doc value fields.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>HunspellStemFilter now uses 10 to 100x less RAM. It also loads
+  all known OpenOffice dictionaries without error.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene now also fsyncs the directory metadata on commits, if the
+  operating system and file system allow it (Linux, MacOSX are
+  known to work).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene now uses Java 7 file system functions under the hood,
+  so index files can be deleted on Windows, even when readers are
+  still open.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>A serious bug in NativeFSLockFactory was fixed, which could
+  allow multiple IndexWriters to acquire the same lock.  The
+  lock file is no longer deleted from the index directory
+  even when the lock is not held.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Various bugfixes and optimizations since the 4.7.2 release.</p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<h2 id="15-april-2014-lucene-core-472-available">15 April 2014 - Lucene Core 4.7.2 Available</h2>
+<p>The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 4.7.2</p>
+<p>Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
+library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly
+any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.</p>
+<p>The release is available for immediate download at:
+ <a href="http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html">http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html</a> </p>
+<p>Lucene 4.7.2 includes 2 bug fixes, including a possible index corruption 
+with near-realtime search.</p>
+<p>See the <a href="/core/4_7_2/changes/Changes.html">CHANGES.txt</a> file included with the

+<p>The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 4.7.1</p>
+<p>Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
+library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly

+<p>Lucene 4.7.1 includes 14 bug fixes; one build improvement; and one change in
+runtime behavior: AutomatonQuery.equals is no longer implemented as "accepts
+same language".</p>

+<h2 id="12-march-2014-apache-lucene-48-will-require-java-7">12 March 2014 - Apache Lucene 4.8 will require Java 7</h2>
+<p>The Apache Lucene committers decided with a large majority on the vote to require <strong>Java 7</strong> for the next minor release of Apache Lucene (version 4.8)!</p>
+<p>The next release will also contain some improvements for Java 7:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Better file handling (especially on Windows) in the directory implementations. Files can now be deleted on windows, although the index is still open - like it was always possible on Unix environments (delete on last close semantics).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Speed improvements in sorting comparators: Sorting now uses Java 7's own comparators for integer and long sorts, which are highly optimized by the Hotspot VM.</p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<p>If you want to stay up-to-date with Lucene and Solr, you should upgrade your infrastructure to Java 7.
+Please be aware that you must use at least use Java 7u1.
+The recommended version at the moment is Java 7u25. Later versions like 7u40, 7u45,... have a bug causing index corrumption.
+Ideally use the Java 7u60 prerelease, which has fixed this bug. Once 7u60 is out, this will be the recommended version.
+In addition, there is no more Oracle/BEA JRockit available for Java 7, use the official Oracle Java 7.
+JRockit was never working correctly with Lucene/Solr (causing index corrumption), so this should not be an issue.
+Please also review our list of JVM bugs: <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs">http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs</a></p>
+<p><em>EDIT (as of 15 April 2014):</em> The recently released Java 7u55 fixes the above bug causing index corrumption.
+This version is now the recommended version for running Apache Lucene.</p>
+<h2 id="26-february-2014-lucene-core-47-available">26 February 2014 - Lucene Core 4.7 Available</h2>
+<p>The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 4.7</p>
+<p>Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
+library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly
+any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.</p>
+<p>This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and

+<p>See the <a href="/core/4_7_0/changes/Changes.html">CHANGES.txt</a> file included
+with the release for a full list of details.</p>
+<h3 id="lucene-47-release-highlights">Lucene 4.7 Release Highlights:</h3>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>When sorting by String (SortField.STRING), you can now specify whether missing values should be sorted first (the default), or last. </p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add two memory resident dictionaries (FST terms dictionary and FSTOrd
+  terms dictionary) to improve primary key lookups. The
+  PostingsBaseFormat API is also changed so that term dictionaries get
+  the ability to block encode term metadata, and all dictionary
+  implementations can now plug in any PostingsBaseFormat.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>NRT support for file systems that do not have delete on last close or cannot delete while referenced semantics.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add LongBitSet for managing more than 2.1B bits (otherwise use FixedBitSet).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Speed up Lucene range faceting from O(N) per hit to O(log(N)) per hit using segment trees.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add SearcherTaxonomyManager over search and taxonomy index directories
+  (i.e. not only NRT).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Drilling down or sideways on a Lucene facet range (using
+  Range.getFilter()) is now faster for costly filters (uses random
+  access, not iteration); range facet counts now accept a fast-match
+  filter to avoid computing the value for documents that are out of
+  bounds, e.g. using a bounding box filter with distance range faceting.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add Analyzer for Kurdish.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add Payload support to FileDictionary (Suggest) and make it more configurable.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add a new BlendedInfixSuggester, which is like AnalyzingInfixSuggester but boosts suggestions that matched tokens with lower positions.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add SimpleQueryParser: parser for human-entered queries.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add multitermquery (wildcards,prefix,etc) to PostingsHighlighter.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Upgrade to Spatial4j 0.4.1: Parses WKT (including ENVELOPE) with extension BUFFER; buffering a point results in a Circle. JTS isn't
+  needed for WKT any more but remains required for Polygons. New Shapes: ShapeCollection and BufferedLineString.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Add spatial SerializedDVStrategy that serializes a binary
+  representation of a shape into BinaryDocValues. It supports exact
+  geometry relationship calculations.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Various bugfixes and optimizations since the 4.6.1 release.</p>

+<h3 id="lucene-42-release-highlights">Lucene 4.2 Release Highlights:</h3>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene 4.2 has a new default codec (Lucene42Codec) with a more
+  efficient docvalues format (sorted bytes in FST, less addressing
+  overhead, improved numeric compression) and smaller term
+  vectors (LZ4-compressed terms dictionaries and payloads, delta-encoded
+  positions and offsets using blocks of packed integers).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Doc values external and codec API and implementations have been
+  simplified: the codec is no longer responsible for buffering doc
+  values; the numerous types have been consolidated down to only
+  three (NUMERIC, BINARY, SORTED); PerFieldDocValuesFormat lets you
+  set a different format for each field, and the doc values and FieldCache
+  APIs were unified.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Significant refactoring and performance enhancements to the facet
+  module, resulting in overall ~3.8X speedup in one case (single Date
+  field faceting).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>DrillDownQuery in the facet module now supports multi-select.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>A new DrillSideways class enables counting facet labels and counts
+  for both hits and near-misses in a single query.  See
+  <a href="http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2013/02/drill-sideways-faceting-with-lucene.html">http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2013/02/drill-sideways-faceting-with-lucene.html</a></p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>An additional docvalues type (SORTED_SET) was added that supports multiple
+  values.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>FSTs are a bit smaller, and the FST package supports FSTs over 2GB
+  in size.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>A new LiveFieldValues class lets you get live or real-time values
+  for any indexed doc / field.  See <a href="http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2013/01/getting-real-time-field-values-in-lucene.html">http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2013/01/getting-real-time-field-values-in-lucene.html</a></p>

+<h3 id="lucene-41-release-highlights">Lucene 4.1 Release Highlights:</h3>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene 4.1 has a new default codec (Lucene41Codec) based on the
+  previously-experimental "Block" indexing format for improved
+  performance, but also incorporating the functionality of "Appending"
+  and "Pulsing".</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>The default codec incorporates the optimization of Pulsing: terms
+  that appear in only one document (such as primary key/id fields) just
+  store the document id in the term dictionary instead of a pointer to
+  this document id in a separate file.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>The default codec incorporates an efficient compressed stored fields
+  implementation that compresses chunks of documents together with LZ4.
+  (see
+  <a href="http://blog.jpountz.net/post/33247161884/efficient-compressed-stored-fields-with-lucene">http://blog.jpountz.net/post/33247161884/efficient-compressed-stored-fields-with-lucene</a>)</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene no longer seeks when writing files (all fields are written in
+  an append-only way). This means it works by default with append-only
+  streams, hdfs, etc.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>New suggest implementations: AnalyzingSuggester, where the underlying
+  form (computed from a lucene Analyzer) used for suggestions is
+  separate from the returned text (see
+  <a href="http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2012/09/lucenes-new-analyzing-suggester.html">http://blog.mikemccandless.com/2012/09/lucenes-new-analyzing-suggester.html</a>),
+  and FuzzySuggester, which additionally allows for inexact matching on
+  the input.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Near-realtime support was added to the facet module.
+  (see <a href="http://shaierera.blogspot.com/2012/11/lucene-facets-part-1.html">http://shaierera.blogspot.com/2012/11/lucene-facets-part-1.html</a>)</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>New Highlighter (postingshighlighter) added to the highlighter
+  module.  (see

+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Added FilterStrategy to FilteredQuery for more flexibility in
+  filtered query execution.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Added CommonTermsQuery to speed up queries with very highly frequent
+  terms.  Term frequencies are efficiently detected at query time - no
+  index time preparation required.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Several bugfixes and optimizations since the 4.0 release.</p>

+<p>The Apache Solr committers decided with a large majority on the vote to require <strong>Java 7</strong> for the next minor release of Apache Solr (version 4.8)!</p>
+<p>The next release will also contain some improvements for Java 7:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Better file handling (especially on Windows) in the directory implementations. Files can now be deleted on windows, although the index is still open - like it was always possible on Unix environments (delete on last close semantics).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Speed improvements in sorting comparators: Sorting now uses Java 7's own comparators for integer and long sorts, which are highly optimized by the Hotspot VM.</p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<p>If you want to stay up-to-date with Lucene and Solr, you should upgrade your infrastructure to Java 7.
+Please be aware that you must use at least use Java 7u1.
+The recommended version at the moment is Java 7u25. Later versions like 7u40, 7u45,... have a bug causing index corrumption.
+Ideally use the Java 7u60 prerelease, which has fixed this bug. Once 7u60 is out, this will be the recommended version.
+In addition, there is no more Oracle/BEA JRockit available for Java 7, use the official Oracle Java 7.
+JRockit was never working correctly with Lucene/Solr (causing index corrumption), so this should not be an issue.
+Please also review our list of JVM bugs: <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs">http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs</a></p>
+<p><em>EDIT (as of 15 April 2014):</em> The recently released Java 7u55 fixes the above bug causing index corrumption.

+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Schemaless mode: Added support for a mode that requires no up-front schema
+  modifications, in which previously unknown fields' types are guessed based
+  on the values in added/updated documents, and are then added to the schema
+  prior to processing the update.  Note that the below-described features

+<li>New Parse{Date,Integer,Long,Float,Double,Boolean}UpdateProcessorFactory
+  classes parse/guess the field value class for String-valued and unknown

+  field-value-class-guessing and unknown-field-schema-addition features,
+  is provided at solr/example/example-schemaless/.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Core Discovery mode: A new solr.xml format which does not store core
+  information, but instead searches for files named 'core.properties' in
+  the filesystem which tell Solr all the details about that core.  The main
+  example and the schemaless example both use this new format.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Schema REST API: Add support for creating copy fields.</p>
+</li>
+<li>

+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Added a PUT command to the Solr ZkCli tool.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>New "deleteshard" collections API that unloads all replicas of a given
+  shard and then removes it from the cluster state. It will remove only

+<p>The CSV Update Handler now supports optionally adding the line number/
+  row id to a document.</p>

+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>A read side REST API for the schema. Always wanted to introspect the schema over http? 
+  Now you can. Looks like the write side will be coming next.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>DocValues have been integrated into Solr. DocValues can be loaded up a lot faster than 
+  the field cache and can also use different compression algorithms as well as in RAM or 
+  on Disk representations. Faceting, sorting, and function queries all get to benefit. 
+  How about the OS handling faceting and sorting caches off heap? No more tuning 60 gigabyte heaps? 
+  How about a snappy new per segment DocValues faceting method? Improved numeric faceting? Sweet.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Collection Aliasing. Got time based data? Want to re-index in a temporary collection 
+  and then swap it into production? Done. Stay tuned for Shard Aliasing.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Collection API responses. The collections API was still very new in 4.0, and while it 
+  improved a fair bit in 4.1, responses were certainly needed, but missed the cut off. 
+  Initially, we made the decision to make the Collection API super fault tolerant, which 
+  made responses tougher to do. No one wants to hunt through logs files to see how things 
+  turned out. Done in 4.2.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Interact with any collection on any node. Until 4.2, you could only interact with a node 
+  in your cluster if it hosted at least one replica of the collection you wanted to query/update. 
+  No longer - query any node, whether it has a piece of your intended collection or not and 
+  get a proxied response.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Allow custom shard names so that new host addresses can take over for retired shards. 
+  Working on Amazon without elastic ips? This is for you.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Lucene 4.2 optimizations such as compressed term vectors.</p>

+<li>Documents with ids sharing the same domain/prefix, e.g.
