+ Apache Solr 1.4 has been released and is now available for public download!
+ Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search
+ platform from the Apache Lucene project.  Its major features include
+ powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic
+ clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF)
+ handling.  Solr is highly scalable, providing distributed search and
+ index replication, and it powers the search and navigation features of
+ many of the world's largest internet sites.
+ Solr is written in Java and runs as a standalone full-text search server
+ within a servlet container such as Tomcat.  Solr uses the Lucene Java
+ search library at its core for full-text indexing and search, and has
+ REST-like HTTP/XML and JSON APIs that make it easy to use from virtually
+ any programming language.  Solr's powerful external configuration allows it to
+ be tailored to almost any type of application without Java coding, and
+ it has an extensive plugin architecture when more advanced
+ customization is required.
+ New Solr 1.4 features include
+ - Major performance enhancements in indexing, searching, and faceting
+ - Revamped all-Java index replication that's simple to configure and
+ can replicate config files
+ - Greatly improved database integration via the DataImportHandler
+ - Rich document processing (Word, PDF, HTML) via Apache Tika
+ - Dynamic search results clustering via Carrot2
+ - Multi-select faceting (support for multiple items in a single
+ category to be selected)
+ - Many powerful query enhancements, including ranges over arbitrary
+ functions, and nested queries of different syntaxes
+ - Many other plugins including Terms for auto-suggest, Statistics,
+ TermVectors, Deduplication
