Lucene/Solr 4.0 Beta is out

This week the ß version of Apache Lucene/Solr was released, see release announcement. This means that things are getting stable and approaching the FINAL release – after a looong time in the makings.

The most important changes is perhaps better maturity for SolrCloud along with a lot of bug fixes. If you need the ease of scalability that SolrCloud brings, this beta is a safe version to get started with – even in production. We (the developers) promise that we’ll not break backwards compat unless absolutely necessary due to a bug or something.

Some of the contributions from Cominvent include SOLR-3377, SOLR-1856, SOLR-1929, SOLR-3672, SOLR-3467, SOLR-3660, SOLR-3648, SOLR-3439, SOLR-2802, SOLR-3255, SOLR-3351 and more.
