Lucene Java versions 3.0.1 and 2.9.2:
> Both releases fix bugs in the previous versions, where 2.9.2 is the last release working
with Java 1.4, still providing all deprecated APIs of the Lucene Java 2.x series. 3.0.1 has
the same bug fix level, but requires Java 5 and is no longer compatible with code using deprecated
APIs. The API was cleaned up to make use of Java 5's generics, varargs, enums, and autoboxing.
New users of Lucene are advised to use version 3.0.1 for new developments, because it has
a clean, type safe new API. Users upgrading from 2.9.x can now remove unnecessary casts and
add generics to their code, too.
> Important improvements in these releases are a increased maximum number of unique terms
in each index segment. They also add fixes in IndexWriter’s commit and lost document deletes
in near real-time indexing. Also lots of bugs in Contrib’s Analyzers package were fixed.
Additionally, the 3.0.1 release restored some public methods, that get lost during deprecation
removal. If you are using Lucene in a web application environment, you will notice that the
new Attribute-based TokenStream API now works correct with different class loaders.
> Both releases are fully compatible with the corresponding previous versions. We strongly
recommend upgrading to 2.9.2 if you are using 2.9.1 or 2.9.0; and to 3.0.1 if you are using
