Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8396) Investigate PointField to replace NumericField types
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2016 19:11:25 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-8396:

I've been following along quietly.

As Yonik has noted elsewhere, the change in Lucene means that the current Solr example configs
have deprecated types in them.  If we release 6.0.0 without some form of the patch for this
issue, users who install 6.0.0 and don't change their configs will be unable to upgrade to
7.x -- they'll be using Lucene classes that will no longer exist in the upgraded version.

And now for the suggestion that might get me lynched:

I believe that if we cannot get this patch into 6.0.0 before the release is made, we need
to *not* release Solr 6.0.0.  Instead we should wait until we can remove deprecated classes
from our configs and release with 6.0.1 or 6.1.0 instead.

in most respects. We should explore the benefits of using it in Solr and hence, if appropriate,
switch over to using them.
