Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Lucene 6.5.0 released
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2017 08:40:34 GMT
27 March 2017 - Apache Luceneā„¢ 6.5.0 available
The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 6.5.0.

Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly
any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.

This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and improvements,
some of which are highlighted below:

   - It is now possible filter out duplicates in the NRT suggester
   - SimpleQueryString now supports default fuziness
   - IndexWriter can return the list of visible field names
   - DisjunctionScorer now supports returning the matching children clauses
   - A new FunctionScoreQuery that modifies the internal query's score
   using the per-document values
   - A new FunctionMatchQuery that returns any documents with a value that
   matches a predicate
   - A new WordDelimiterGraphFilter that outputs a correct graph structure
   for multi-token expansion at query time
   - A new PatternTokenizer that uses Lucene's RegExp implementation
   - RangeFieldQuery now supports CROSSES relation
   - A new IndexOrDocValuesQuery that uses either an index (points or
   terms) or doc values in order to run a (range, geo box and distance) query,
   depending which one is more efficient
   - index-time boosts are deprecated
   - Term filters are no longer cached
   - Compound filters are cached earlier than regular queries
   - BKDReader now calls grow on larger increments
   - LatLonPointInPolygonQuery are faster
   - LatLonPointDistanceQuery now skips distance computations more often
   - To-parent block joins now implements two-phase iteration
   - Point ranges that match most documents are faster
   - PointValues#estimatePointCount is faster with
   - Segments are now also sorted during flush, and merging on a sorted
   index is substantially faster by using some of the same bulk merge
   optimizations that non-sorted merging uses
