Apache Lucene 7.6.0 release, Java search engine
Lucene is an open-source full-text search engine toolkit for the Apache Software Foundation, is a full-text search engine architecture that provides a complete query engine and index engine, part of the text analysis engine. Lucene’s goal is to provide an easy-to-use toolkit for software developers to facilitate full-text retrieval in the target system, or to build a complete full-text search engine based on it.
Apache Lucene 7.6.0 has been released.
This is a repaired version that primarily addresses the following bugs:
- * Index sorting corruption due to numeric overflow has been fixed. Indices affected by this bug can be detected by running the CheckIndex command on a 7.6+ release distribution.
- * Better tessellation processing of Polygons including graceful exceptions for detecting invalid shapes.
- * Points codec now supports selective indexing; the ability to designate dimensions as “data only” dimensions that do not affect the construction of the index.
- * New Simple WKT Shape Parser builds Lucene geometries (polygons, lines, rectangles) from WKT format.
- * New LatLonShapeLineQuery queries indexed shapes with arbitrary lines.
- * Performance in PerFieldMergeState#FilterFieldInfos has been improved from O(N) to O(1) lookup time.
