Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Lucene 8.7.0 released
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2020 14:06:57 GMT
03/11/2020, Apache Luceneā„¢ 8.7 available

The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 8.7.


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. The release is
available for immediate download at:


http://lucene.apache.org/core/mirrors-core-latest-redir.html


Lucene 8.7 Release Highlights:

Better compression of stored fields. Stored fields now use
dictionaries in order to improve the compression ratio when there is a
lot of redundancy across documents. This works for both the BEST_SPEED
and the BEST_COMPRESSION modes.


Faster sorting by field. When a doc-value field is also indexed with
points, Lucene now takes advantage of this points index in order to
skip documents whose sort value is not competitive.


Faster flushing of stored fields when index sorting is enabled. This
can significantly speed up indexing when a non-negligible amount of
data is stored in the index and index sorting is enabled.


Further details of changes are available in the change log available
at: https://lucene.apache.org/core/8_7_0/changes/Changes.html
