Subject VOTE: RC0 Release apache-solr-ref-guide-4.8.pdf
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2014 23:20:43 GMT

(Note: cross posted to general, please confine replies to dev@)

Please VOTE to release the following RC0 as apache-solr-ref-guide-4.8.pdf ...

2 important notes about this RC...

1) Due to a known bug in confluence, the PDFs it generates are much bigger 
then they should be.  This bug has been fixed in the latest version of 
confluence, but cwiki.apache.rog has not yet been updated.  For that 
reason, I have manually run a small tool against the PDF to "fix" the size 
(see SOLR-5819).  The first time i tried this approach, it inadvertantly 
removed the "Index" (aka: Table of Contents, or Bookmarks depending on 
what PDF reader client you use).  I've already fixed this, but if you 
notice anything else unusual about this PDF compared to previous versions 
please speak up so we can see if it's a result of this post-processing 
and try to fix it.

2) This is the first ref guide release where we've started using a special 
confluence macro for any lucene/solr javadoc links.  The up side is that 
all javadoc links in this 4.8 ref guide will now correctly point to the 
4.8 javadocs on -- the down side is that this means none 
of those links currently work, since the 4.8 code release is still 
ongoing and the website has not yet been updated.

Because of #2, I intend to leave this ref guide vote open beyond the 
normal 72 hours (minimum), until the 4.8 code release is final - that way 
we won't officially be releasing this doc until the 4.8 javadocs are 
uploaded and all the links work properly.
