Subject Re: Let's release Lucene 2.3 soon?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2007 07:02:58 GMT
I would like to also include:

- LUCENE-1019: CustomScoreQuery should support multiple
               ValueSourceQueries (ready, will commit soon)

- LUCENE 1081: Remove the "Experimental" warnings from
               search.function package.
