Subject: [Vote] Apache Lucene.Net 4.8.0-beta00004

Here we go again! This release includes a fix for the AssemblyVersion (and other assembly
metadata) of Lucene.Net.QueryParser and Lucene.Net.Expressions that were not correctly included
because of linked file flakiness in project.json files. There are also updates to the initialization
of Codec, PostingsFormat, and DocValuesFormat classes so the Reflection code is executed lazily
instead of during static initialization when it is likely to fail in some types of applications.
The default codec is now loaded lazily as well and some concurrency issues of the codec factories
were addressed.

There were 3 new codec related test failures on .NET core, but after investigation this turned
out to be due to the default codec being changed by the test framework to Lucene3x, which
is not a writable codec, and the tests expect the codec to be writable. A fix is in the works
(which will make these 3 tests no longer randomly fail) but this is no reason to hold up the

The source and binary packages are available for inspection at:

There is a MyGet feed that can be accessed at:
