Oops.  That log entry was supposed to read:

   Added support for boosting the score of documents and fields via the
   new methods Document.setBoost(float) and Field.setBoost(float).

   Note: This changes the encoding of an indexed value.  Indexes should
   be re-created from scratch in order for search scores to be correct.
   With the new code and an old index, searches will yield very large
   scores for shorter fields, and very small scores for longer fields.
   Once the index is re-created, scores will be as before.
