Solr logging just got better

Using a product like Solr over time makes you blind to certain things. Logging is one such area. For me it started with realizing that the default logging was way too verbose, and soon I found a two year old bug ticket with the title “Reduce logging during startup and shutdown” that I brought to life again.

Turned out that we could reduce the log from a bin/solr start -f from 31 to 9 lines, while bin/solr create -c foo was shrunk from 129 lines to 48 lines and bin/solr start -c -f was shrunk from 67 to 20 lines! Alan Woodward and Alexandre Rafalovitch joined the effort and soon SOLR-5563 was also committed.

Men hvorfor skal du oppgradere? Vel, endringsloggen gir deg 40 bug-grunner og 33 funksjonalitets-grunner 🙂 La meg vise deg noen av de viktigste::

Solr 6 released

A few weeks ago, Solr 6.0 was released, and right after we also released Solr 5.5.1. That means that most probably 5.5.x is the last in the 5.x series, so start preparing for an upgrade.

Why would you upgrade? Well, Changes gives you 40 bug-reasons and 33 feature-reasons 🙂 Let me highlight the coolest ones:
