Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1349) Mark Fieldable as allowing some changes in 2.x future releases
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2008 10:16:47 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1349:

Looks good Grant.

Maybe cancel out the double-negative in:

bq. It will, however, not mean that a new version of the Lucene can't read an old version
within the same major version.

to something like this (rough draft)?

This change only affects the Fieldable API; other backwards
compatibility promises remain intact.  For example, Lucene can still
read and write indices created within the same major version.

> 1. We mark Fieldable as being subject to change. We heavily advertise (on java-dev and
java-user and maybe general) that in the next minor release of Lucene (2.4), Fieldable will
be changing. It is also marked at the top of CHANGES.txt very clearly for all the world to
see. Since 2.4 is probably at least a month away, I think this gives anyone with a pulse enough
time to react.
