Subject [Release] Apache Lucene.Net 4.8.0-beta00004
Date Fri, 26 May 2017 20:26:11 GMT
We are pleased to announce the official public BETA release of Lucene.Net 4.8.0. This is a
significant milestone as well as a significant design change from Lucene.Net 3.0.3. Since
there are more than 350,000 executable lines of code (well over 900,000 lines of text), it
has taken our team over 2 ½ years to port it from Java. This major version update is a culmination
of the efforts of several people, and we truly want to thank everyone involved for your much
needed help!

That said, we are not completely stable yet, and we need volunteers to help us get over the
finish line.

The release can be downloaded at:

NuGet: The new design eliminates the "Contrib" packages and is split among 18 NuGet packages
(with a few others that may be ported if demand warrants it).

The BETA is now ready to be tested on a wider scale, and we could use help both in locating
any remaining issues and resolving them. Please report any bugs on JIRA (

Any other feedback please direct to our user/dev mailing lists as appropriate (

In addition to finding and fixing bugs, there are still some tasks remaining to make Lucene.Net
4.8.0 production ready and feature complete. See our contributor's guide for details (
If you use Lucene.Net, please contribute 1 or 2 hours of your time to help us get the documentation
comments fixed so we can generate complete API documentation (pull requests welcome).
