Thanks, that was indeed the problem.  I didn't realise that, even if 
you've already installed the WAR, you still have to:

*  Download and extract the source tarball
*  Run "build"
*  Copy the resulting xindice.jar from "dist" to the webapp's "lib" 

I don't quite understand why this is necessary.

I think the current migration notes on the Wiki are a little confusing 
if you are trying to install a release version (from a WAR file, for 
example).  Should I write a "migrating to a stable 1.1 release" how-to?
