Subject Re: Lucene and Java 1.5
Date Sat, 27 May 2006 19:41:51 GMT
Another issue concerns user contributions of patches and enhancements. I
have a significant body of code that might be contributed, all in 1.5,
to do things that have been requested by others who participate in the
lists. As most of the development community is using 1.5 now, Lucene may
get fewer good user contributions if it insists on keeping the core in
the dark ages of 1.4. 1.5 is a major improvement in Java development.
This will benefit the API's as well as the implementation. If 2.1+ is
the platform for new api's and functionality, it is will be an
impediment for both of these reasons to restrict it to 1.4.
