Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-510) IndexOutput.writeString() should write length in bytes
Date Fri, 09 May 2008 11:16:57 GMT


Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-510:

No problem Michael. Brave/Foolish, I certainly am one. Can't keep myself away from these fresh
issues :) My fault for not understanding the release process really though. I thought I was
roughly getting 2.3.2 ahead of time. Live and learn :) I got a little lax inspecting all the
issues for someone grabbing from trunk...once all my tests pass I usually feel pretty good
about it. Time to add some upgrade index tests :)

Thanks so much for checking into this so quick - certainly saves me some time today.

> We should change the format of strings written to indexes so that the length of the string
is in bytes, not Java characters.  This issue has been discussed at:
> We must increment the file format number to indicate this change.  At least the format
number in the segments file should change.
> I'm targetting this for 2.1, i.e., we shouldn't commit it to trunk until after 2.0 is
released, to minimize incompatible changes between 1.9 and 2.0 (other than removal of deprecated
