Subject RE: Lucene 2.0.0 release available
Date Tue, 30 May 2006 02:20:04 GMT
Hi Jeff and all,

We must finish 1.9 before working on 2.0 otherwise, there is no guaranty
that 2.0 will not end up with the same fait as 1.9.

Lets face it, 1.9 has been behind it's Java version release mainly because
despite my repeated call for help to finishing it off (even back at I have yet to receive any help.  For 1.9, unlike 1.3 and
1.4 releases, NO ONE, has stepped up and offered to help (except recently
for Eyal's compression code.)

As you can tell, I am frustrated with this.  Because despite not getting any
help, I am getting private emails where folks asking me that they want to
become a committer on ASF for Lucene.Net -- when I pointed them to I don't hear back!!

So please folks, lets first finish off 1.9.  Take a look at the current
source code and comment on the lines that I have questions on.  Those are
found by searching for the text "Aroush".

This past weekend, I have finished the port of the Test code for 1.9 and it
is running.  About 40% of the tests are failing and some were due to bug in
the 1.9 code and the others due to bug in the port of the Test code.  In a
day or two I will release code on ASF and again will be asking for help to
finish off 1.9.

To sum-up, I don't support that we do any work on 2.0 until when we have 1.9
done, otherwise, not only will we have an incomplete 1.9 but 2.0 might end
up like 1.9, incomplete -- and thus, we will now have two incomplete
releases instead of one.

1.9 is very close to being "final" -- lets work together to finish it off
and use this opportunity to become a committer on ASF.

Subject: Fwd: Lucene 2.0.0 release available

Below is a recent message from the Java dev list for Lucene.  As it states,
this is mostly a bugfix release against the 1.9 code.

The development path that's been suggested is that we develop the 1.9release
on the
1.1 Framework and that we would cut over to the 2.0 Framework with the
2.0Lucene release.  I believe this is fine, but we need to begin porting the
Java 2.0 release soon.  The Java 1.9 release was considered complete some
time last fall.  The time divide between the Java release and our C# port is
growing and is getting longer.

Not to take away from the 1.9 efforts on the 1.1 Framework, I'm going to
proceed on porting the Java 2.0 release to C# under the 2.0 Framework.  If
there are a substantial number of bugfixes in the 2.0 release, we should
make use of that as well.

Questions or comments welcome.

Release 2.0.0 of Lucene is now available from:

This is mostly a bugfix release from release 1.9.1. Note however that
deprecated 1.x features have now been removed. Any code that compiles
against Lucene 1.9.1 without deprecation warnings should work without
further changes with any 2.x release.
