Subject Re: 8 for 1.4
Date Tue, 29 Sep 2009 16:16:21 GMT
I just did some testing with the reuters example in the trunk.

The code in the trunk now does not work for both IE7 and IE8.  I tried the
patch from 8/14 but that does not work for IE8 (and IE7).  However, Eric
Pugh had indicated in Jira that he has code that works for both IE7 and
IE8.  I have verified that his site http://www.newswise.com/search does work
for both.  I have ask Eric in the Jira if he can come up with a patch this
week.  I think that's our best bet but I don't think this bug should block
the release of 1.4.  So if there is not patch this week I think SolrJS
should be removed from 1.4.
