There is a 1.1b2 tag in CVS. I checked out using this. Building went
fine, but I was unable to make it work properly. The download page has
changed since I checked out, I think. Untill recently, the download page
only contained the 1.0 version, if I am not mistaken.

I would very much like to spend time testing the newest version, but
when I first started using the database, only 1.0 was available. And my
project requires having a stable and reliable datastore. Most of the
time, the official releases are the most stable ones, so I did my test
against 1.0.

I did not file a bug because I was unable to trace the cause of the
database hanging, but it started after shutting the database down
brutally, and the bug
http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=22775 sounds very

But back to my original question; do you have any opinion on how stable
Xindice is? Which release is the most stable? Can you recommend it in a
production environment?
