Solr 1.4.1 What's New & What's Fixed

What’s New and What’s Fixed in Solr 1.4.1?  Many little and not so little things!  If you have extra time on your hands, you can go read CHANGES.txt.  If you don’t have lots of time, read our summary below:

  • Upgraded Lucene to 2.9.3
  • StreamingUpdateSolrServer could hang, so this was fixed
  • A few (potential or edge-case) memory and resource leaks have been plugged
  • Various Tokenizers and TokenFilters have been fixed.  These changes may actually require you to reindex data if you upgrade to Solr 1.4.1.
  • That’s about it!

Now, if you don’t want to use Solr 1.4.1, but want to ride the trunk, go read What’s New in Solr Since 1.4.0.

  1. Erik & Peter, you are correct., fixed.

    Lukas: no such thing as knowing when Wiki will be up to date. Whenever volunteers jump in.

  2. Is this list correct? Seems to be a mixed list of enhancements on trunk with the fixes in 1.4.1

    The changes for 1.4.1 in the release tarball says:

    ================== Release 1.4.1 ==================
    Release Date: See http://lucene.apache.org/solr for the official release date.

    Upgrading from Solr 1.4
    ———————–

    This is a bug fix release – no changes are required when upgrading from Solr 1.4.
    However, a reindex is needed for some of the analysis fixes to take effect.

  3. It doesnt seem like there is any documentation on edismax beyond the jira ticket. Also not sure what the “Spatial Search” includes yet .. any idea on when the wiki documentation should be up to date ..?

  4. Otis – you’re linking to trunk CHANGES.txt, not to 1.4.1 stuff. 1.4.1 is purely a bug fix release, so the extdismax isn’t there, etc.

    And you never needed JSON or XML to call commit… just use /update?commit=true 🙂
