Good Afternoon Everyone,

The Apache Nutch PMC are extremely pleased to announce the immediate release of Apache Nutch v2.2.

Apache Nutch is an open source web-search software project. Stemming from Apache Lucene, it now builds on Apache Solr adding web-specifics, such as a crawler, a link-graph database and parsing support handled by Apache Tika for HTML and and array other document formats.

This release includes over 30 bug fixes and over 25 improvements representing the third release of increasingly popular 2.x Nutch series. This release features inclusion of Crawler-Commons which Nutch now utilizes for improved robots.txt parsing, library upgrades to Apache Hadoop 1.1.1, Apache Gora 0.3, Apache Tika 1.2 and Automaton 1.11-8. Please see the list of changes or the release report made in this version for a full breakdown. As usual in the 2.x series, this release is made available only as source, but is also available within Maven Central. The release is available here.

Have a great weekend.

(on behalf of the Apache Nutch community)
