  -XML
  -PDF
  -MsWord/RTF
  -other common file formats
  THanks.

  Thanks!

  Yes.  Thanks for pointing these out.  These are big incompatible changes
  that I forgot to mention.  

  Other changes since 1.01b include:
    - ant-only build -- no more makefiles
    - addition of lock files--now fully thread & process safe
    - addition of German stemmer
    - MultiSearcher now supports low-level search API
    - added RangeQuery, for term-range searching
    - Analyzers can choose tokenizer based on field name
    - misc bug fixes.

  I need to work up detailed release notes for the final 1.2 release.

  Let's see, some short term tasks for the 1.2 release:
    - get source code back into releases
    - clean up example code
    - write release notes

  Some mid-term tasks:
    - add contributed Chinese analyzers
    - add Hits.SetOrdering() support
    - add some term highlighting support

  Longer term tasks:
    - add JDBC-based Directory
    - optimize simple conjunctive queries
    - optionally store document vectors in index

  Have I missed your favorite?

  Doug
