Hi all,

Just a quick recap of the last couple of weeks.

We have started the process of working towards Lucene.NET 4.8, which will
conform to Java Lucene 4.8.0 (with a quick patch later to bring it up to
speed with 4.8.1).

The changes from the current Lucene.NET version (which is 3.0.3) are huge.
The project structure is different, the capabilities and features are new.
It's practically a different project.

As such, we are trying to revamp our process as well, to be more agile and
trying to heal the community and project while at it. We have a private
thread going on to think of ways we can do that, one of them is to
reinstate the PMC, and more is coming.

The new sources are here for you to experiment with:
https://github.com/apache/lucene.net

The Core project is almost entirely ported including all tests, and we have
most of the tests green. We have more sub-projects (like Facet, Queries,
Analysis, Codecs and more) in the middle of the porting process and should
have them out of the door soon as well.

Feel free to try it all out - we would love to have more hands on deck for
testing and fixing the last remaining tests!

We are also working on a CI pipeline, on a TeamCity instance provided by
CodeBetter and JetBrains here:
teamcity.codebetter.com/project.html?projectId=LuceneNet&tab=projectOverview

We are very interested in hearing from you, and hope to see interest and
participation grow as we move ahead. We will be sharing more as more
happens!

Cheers,
