+ == Release Announcement ==
  
+ {{{
+ 12 April 2012, Apache Luceneā„¢ 3.6.0 available
+ The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 3.6.0.
+ 
+ Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
+ library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly
+ any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.
+ 
+ This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and
+ improvements, some of which are highlighted below.  The release
+ is available for immediate download at:
+    http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html (see
+ note below).
+ 
+ See the CHANGES.txt file included with the release for a full list of
+ details.
+ 
+ Lucene 3.6.0 Release Highlights:
+ 
+   * In addition to Java 5 and Java 6, this release has now
+     full Java 7 support (minimum JDK 7u1 required).
+ 
+   * TypeTokenFilter filters tokens based on their TypeAttribute.
+ 
+   * Fixed offset bugs in a number of CharFilters, Tokenizers and TokenFilters
+     that could lead to exceptions during highlighting.
+ 
+   * Added phonetic encoders: Metaphone, Soundex, Caverphone,
+     Beider-Morse, etc.
+ 
+   * CJKBigramFilter and CJKWidthFilter replace CJKTokenizer.
+ 
+   * Kuromoji morphological analyzer tokenizes Japanese text, producing
+     both compound words and their segmentation.
+ 
+   * Static index pruning (Carmel pruning) removes postings with low
+     within-document term frequency.
+ 
+   * QueryParser now interprets '*' as an open end for range
+     queries.
+ 
+   * FieldValueFilter excludes documents missing the specified field.
+ 
+   * CheckIndex and IndexUpgrader allow you to specify the
+     specific FSDirectory implementation to use with the new -dir-impl
+     command-line option.
+ 
+   * FSTs can now do reverse lookup (by output) in certain cases and
+     can be packed to reduce their size.  There is now a method to
+     retrieve top N shortest paths from a start node in an FST.
+ 
+   * New WFSTCompletionLookup suggester supports finer-grained
+     ranking for suggestions.
+ 
+   * FST based suggesters now use an offline (disk-based) sort, instead
+     of in-memory sort, when pre-sorting the suggestions.
+ 
+   * ToChildBlockJoinQuery joins in the opposite direction (parent down
+     to child documents).
+ 
+   * New query-time joining is more flexible (but less performant) than
+     index-time joins.
+ 
+   * Added HTMLStripCharFilter to strip HTML markup.
+ 
+   * Security fix: Better prevention of virtual machine SIGSEGVs when
+     using MMapDirectory: Code using cloned IndexInputs of already
+     closed indexes could possibly crash VM, allowing DoS attacks to
+     your application.
+ 
+   * Many bug fixes...
+ 
+ Note: The Apache Software Foundation uses an extensive mirroring network for
+ distributing releases.  It is possible that the mirror you are using may not
+ have replicated the release yet.  If that is the case, please try another
+ mirror.  This also goes for Maven access.
+ 
+ Happy searching,
+ 
+ Apache Lucene/Solr Developers
