Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache PyLucene 4.8.0
Date Mon, 05 May 2014 06:29:02 GMT

I am pleased to announce the availability of Apache PyLucene 4.8.0.

Apache PyLucene, a subproject of Apache Lucene, is a Python extension for
accessing Apache Lucene Core. Its goal is to allow you to use Lucene's text
indexing and searching capabilities from Python. It is API compatible with
the latest version of Lucene 4.x Core, 4.8.0.

This release contains a number of bug fixes and improvements. Details can be 
found in the changes files:

JCC is still at version 2.19, it did not change since PyLucene 4.7.2.

******* <ATTENTION> *******

Starting with release 4.8.0, Lucene now requires Java 1.7 at the minimum.
Using Java 1.6 with Lucene 4.8.0 is not supported.

On Mac OS X, Java 6 is still a common default, please upgrade if you haven't
done so already. A common upgrade is Oracle Java 1.7 for Mac OS X:

On Mac OS X, a way to make Java 1.7 the default in your bash shell is:
   $ export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home`
Be sure to verify that JAVA_HOME value.

On any system, if you're upgrading your Java installation, please rebuild
JCC first, before rebuilding PyLucene.
You must use the same version of Java for both JCC and PyLucene.

******* </ATTENTION> *******

Apache PyLucene is available from the following download page:

When downloading from a mirror site, please remember to verify the downloads 
using signatures found on the Apache site:
