Subject RE: Apache Lucene.Net.2.3.1 build 001 "Alpha" is now available
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2008 16:51:14 GMT

A 2.1 release would be a good exercise at working on a release process to
meet the Apache release requirement.  The process is time consuming and
requires review and approval by PMC.  I have done it once in the past with

The two issues you highlighted, specially 106, I like to know why this is an
issue with 2.1 but not with 2.0 or prior.  I know we had this issue with
earlier releases, but it was addressed without such a significant change of
introducing a new class.

In the next few days, I will review existing open JIRA issues and comment

> 24Jun08:
> 	- Dev Release:  Apache Lucene.Net.2.3.1 build 001 "Alpha"
> 	- Port: Ported teh "Core" and "Demo" code from Java to C#.
> 	- Issues: Test code is not released yet.
> 	- Note: Requires Visual Studio 2005 or later and .NET 
> 2.0 or later.
> 	- Note: There is no 2.3.0 or 2.2 release (to correspond 
> with the Java Lucene release).
> Please grab a copy from SVN and give it a spin.
