Solr Cookbook, 3rd Edition — Now Available and includes Solr 5.0

Hot off the press: a brand new Solr Cookbook!  One of Sematext’s Solr and Elasticsearch experts — and authorsRafał Kuć, has just published the third and latest edition of Solr Cookbook.  This edition covers both Solr 4.x (based on the newest 4.10.3 version of Solr) and the just-released Solr 5.0.

Similar to previous Solr Cookbooks, Rafal updated the book significantly — half of the previous content has been changed — and rewrote all of the recipes.

    1. We’ve got a word from Packt, the code is only valid once per user and can be used by unlimited users, to use it follow the steps:
      * login into your Packt account at the provided webpage
      * add the book to your cart
      * enter the promotion code in the “Do you have a promo code” field
      * click “Apply” button

    1. Thanks for letting us know. We’ve pinged Packt, the publisher, and will update the post when we get the new code (or try again later — Packt may choose to keep the code and just increase coupon usage limit).
