>> Solr 4.8.0 Release Highlights:
>> 
>> * Apache Solr now requires Java 7 or greater (recommended is
>>  Oracle Java 7 or OpenJDK 7, minimum update 55; earlier versions
>>  have known JVM bugs affecting Solr).
>> 
>> * Apache Solr is fully compatible with Java 8.
>> 
>> * <fields> and <types> tags have been deprecated from schema.xml.
>>  There is no longer any reason to keep them in the schema file,
>>  they may be safely removed. This allows intermixing of <fieldType>,
>>  <field> and <copyField> definitions if desired.
>> 
>> * The new {!complexphrase} query parser supports wildcards, ORs etc.
>>  inside Phrase Queries.
>> 
>> * New Collections API CLUSTERSTATUS action reports the status of
>>  collections, shards, and replicas, and also lists collection
>>  aliases and cluster properties.
>> 
>> * Added managed synonym and stopword filter factories, which enable
>>  synonym and stopword lists to be dynamically managed via REST API.
>> 
>> * JSON updates now support nested child documents, enabling {!child}
>>  and {!parent} block join queries.
>> 
>> * Added ExpandComponent to expand results collapsed by the
>>  CollapsingQParserPlugin, as well as the parent/child relationship
>>  of nested child documents.
>> 
>> * Long-running Collections API tasks can now be executed
>>  asynchronously; the new REQUESTSTATUS action provides status.
>> 
>> * Added a hl.qparser parameter to allow you to define a query parser
>>  for hl.q highlight queries.
>> 
>> * In Solr single-node mode, cores can now be created using named
>>  configsets.
>> 
>> * New DocExpirationUpdateProcessorFactory supports computing an
>>  expiration date for documents from the "TTL" expression, as well as
>>  automatically deleting expired documents on a periodic basis.
>> 
>> Solr 4.8.0 also includes many other new features as well as numerous
>> optimizations and bugfixes of the corresponding Apache Lucene release.
