+## 18 August 2014 - Recommendation to update Apache POI in Apache Solr 4.8.0, 4.8.1, and
4.9.0 installations
 
-See the [CHANGES.txt]() file included with the release for a full list of details.
+Apache Solr versions 4.8.0, 4.8.1, 4.9.0 bundle Apache POI 3.10-beta2 with its binary release
tarball.
+This version (and all previous ones) of Apache POI are vulnerable to the following issues:
 
-***
+### CVE-2014-3529: XML External Entity (XXE) problem in Apache POI's OpenXML parser
 
-<span class="date">2 May 2014</span>
-## Apache Solr Ref Guide for 4.8 Available
+*Information disclosure:* Apache POI uses Java's XML components to parse OpenXML files produced
by Microsoft Office products (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX,...).
+Applications that accept such files from end-users are vulnerable to XML External Entity
(XXE) attacks, which allows remote attackers to bypass
+security restrictions and read arbitrary files via a crafted OpenXML document that provides
an XML external entity declaration in conjunction
+with an entity reference.
 
-The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce that there is a new version of the Solr Reference Guide
available for Solr 4.8. The 396 page PDF serves as the definitive user's manual for Solr 4.8.
It can be downloaded from the Apache mirror network:
+### CVE-2014-3574: XML Entity Expansion (XEE) problem in Apache POI's OpenXML parser
 
-<https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/lucene/solr/ref-guide/>
+*Denial of service:* Apache POI uses Java's XML components and Apache Xmlbeans to parse OpenXML
files produced by Microsoft Office products
+(DOCX, XLSX, PPTX,...). Applications that accept such files from end-users are vulnerable
to XML Entity Expansion (XEE) attacks ("XML bombs"),
+which allows remote hackers to consume large amounts of CPU resources.
+
+**The Apache POI PMC released a bugfix version (3.10.1) today.**
+
+Solr users are affected by these issues, if they enable the "Apache Solr Content Extraction
Library (Solr Cell)"
+contrib module from the folder "contrib/extraction" of the release tarball.
+
+Users of Apache Solr are strongly advised to keep the module disabled if they don't use it.
+Alternatively, users of Apache Solr 4.8.0, 4.8.1, or 4.9.0 can update the affected libraries
by
+replacing the vulnerable JAR files in the distribution folder. Users of previous versions
have
+to update their Solr release first, patching older versions is impossible.
+
+### To replace the vulnerable JAR files follow these steps:
+
+* Download the [Apache POI 3.10.1](http://poi.apache.org/download.html#POI-3.10.1) binary
release.
+
+* Unzip the archive.
+
+* Delete the following files in your "solr-4.X.X/contrib/extraction/lib" folder: 
+    * poi-3.10-beta2.jar
+    * poi-ooxml-3.10-beta2.jar
+    * poi-ooxml-schemas-3.10-beta2.jar
+    * poi-scratchpad-3.10-beta2.jar
+    * xmlbeans-2.3.0.jar
+  
+* Copy the following files from the base folder of the Apache POI distribution to the "solr-4.X.X/contrib/extraction/lib"
folder: 
+    * poi-3.10.1-20140818.jar
+    * poi-ooxml-3.10.1-20140818.jar
+    * poi-ooxml-schemas-3.10.1-20140818.jar
+    * poi-scratchpad-3.10.1-20140818.jar
+
+* Copy "xmlbeans-2.6.0.jar" from POI's "ooxml-lib/" folder to the "solr-4.X.X/contrib/extraction/lib"
folder.
+
+* Verify that the "solr-4.X.X/contrib/extraction/lib" no longer contains any files with version
number "3.10-beta2".
+
+* Verify that the folder contains one xmlbeans JAR file with version 2.6.0.
+
+If you just want to disable extraction of Microsoft Office documents, delete the files above
and don't replace them.
+"Solr Cell" will automatically detect this and disable Microsoft Office document extraction.
+
+Coming versions of Apache Solr will have the updated libraries bundled.

+as well as Lucene 4.7.1 and its bug fixes.
 
-* Added ExpandComponent to expand results collapsed by the CollapsingQParserPlugin, as well
as the parent/child relationship of nested child documents.

+## 12 March 2014 - Apache Solr 4.8 will require Java 7
 
-* Added a hl.qparser parameter to allow you to define a query parser for hl.q highlight queries.
o
+The Apache Solr committers decided with a large majority on the vote to require **Java 7**
for the next minor release of Apache Solr (version 4.8)!
 
-* In Solr single-node mode, cores can now be created using named configsets.
+The next release will also contain some improvements for Java 7:
 
-* New DocExpirationUpdateProcessorFactory supports computing an expiration date for documents
from the "TTL" expression, as well as automatically deleting expired documents on a periodic
basis.
+* 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).
 
-* Solr 4.8.0 also includes many other new features as well as numerous optimizations and
bugfixes of the corresponding [Apache Lucene]() release.
+* 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.
 
-***
+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: <http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs>
 
-<span class="date">14 April 2014</span>
+*EDIT (as of 15 April 2014):* The recently released Java 7u55 fixes the above bug causing
index corrumption.
+This version is now the recommended version for running Apache Solr.

-<span class="date">12 March 2014</span>
+Solr 4.5.1 contains a handful of bug fixes, including 2 that are considered
+quite severe. The release is available for immediate download at:
+<http://lucene.apache.org/solr/mirrors-solr-latest-redir.html>
 
-## Apache Solr 4.8 will require Java 7
+See the [CHANGES.txt](/solr/4_5_1/changes/Changes.html) file included
+with the release for a full list of details. 
 
-The Apache Solr committers decided with a large majority on the vote to require Java 7 for
the next minor release of Apache Solr (version 4.8)!
+## 5 October 2013 - Apache Solr 4.5 and Apache Solr Reference Guide 4.5 Available
 
-The next release will also contain some improvements for Java 7:
+The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of
+Apache Solr 4.5 and the Apache Solr Reference Guide 4.5
+
+Solr is the popular, blazing fast, open source NoSQL search
+platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features
+include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted
+search, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document
+(e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search. Solr is highly
+scalable, providing fault tolerant distributed search and indexing,
+and powers the search and navigation features of many of the
+world's largest internet sites.
 
-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).
+Solr 4.5 is available for immediate download at: 
+<http://lucene.apache.org/solr/mirrors-solr-latest-redir.html>
+
+See the [CHANGES.txt](/solr/4_5_0/changes/Changes.html)
+file included with the release for a full list of details.
+
+The Solr Reference Guide, a 338 page PDF that serves as the
+definitive users manual for Solr 4.5, is available for download
+from the Apache mirror network:
+
+<https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/lucene/solr/ref-guide/>
 
-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.
+### Solr 4.5 Release Highlights:
 
-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: <http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/JavaBugs>
+* Custom sharding support, including the ability to shard by field.
+* DocValue improvements: single valued fields no longer require a
+  default value, allowing dynamicFields to contain doc values, as well
+  as sortMissingFirst and sortMissingLast on docValue fields.
+* Ability to store solr.xml in ZooKeeper.
+* Multithreaded faceting.
+* CloudSolrServer can now route updates directly to the appropriate
+ shard leader.
 
-EDIT (as of 15 April 2014): The recently released Java 7u55 fixes the above bug causing index
corrumption. This version is now the recommended version for running Apache Solr.
+Solr 4.5 also includes many other new features as well as numerous
+ optimizations and bugfixes.
