Subject: Apache Solr 6.0.0 and Reference Guide for 6.0 available

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.

Solr 6.0.0 is available for immediate download at:

Please read CHANGES.txt for a full list of new features and changes:

Solr 6.0 Release Highlights:

  * Improved defaults for "Similarity" used in Solr, in order to provide better default
    experience for new users.

  * Improved "Similarity" defaults for users upgrading: DefaultSimilarityFactory has been

    removed, implicit default Similarity has been changed to SchemaSimilarityFactory, and

    SchemaSimilarityFactory has been modified to use BM25Similarity as the default for 
    field types that do not explicitly declare a Similarity.

  * Deprecated GET methods for schema are now accessible through the bulk API. The output
    has less details and is not backward compatible.

  * Users should set useDocValuesAsStored="false" to preserve sort order on multi-valued
    fields that have both stored="true" and docValues="true". 

  * Formatted date-times have changed to be more explicit and parse exceptions have been

  * Deprecated SolrServer and subclasses have been removed, use SolrClient instead.

  * The deprecated <nrtMode> configuration in solrconfig.xml has been removed.
    Users must remove it from solrconfig.xml.

  * SolrClient.shutdown() has been removed, use SolrClient.close() instead.

  * The deprecated zkCredientialsProvider element in solrcloud section of solr.xml
    is now removed. Use the correct spelling (zkCredentialsProvider) instead.

  * SolrJ no longer includes DateUtil. Use Instant.format() and Instant.parse() for
    formatting and parsing dates.
