25 December 2012, Apache Luceneā„¢ 3.6.2 available

The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 3.6.2.

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 is a bug fix release for version 3.6.1. It 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-3x-redir.html (see
note below).

See the CHANGES.txt file included with the release for a full list of
details.

Lucene 3.6.2 Release Highlights:

 * Fixed ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when the in-memory terms index 
   requires more than 2.1GB of RAM (billions of terms).

 * Fixed a bug in contrib/queryparser's parsing of boolean queries.

 * Fixed BooleanScorer2 to return the correct freq() when using the scorer
   visitor API.

 * Fixed IndexWriter RAM accounting bug that would cause it to flush too
   early when using many different field names.

 * Several other minor bugfixes: scoring bugs when using a custom coord(),
   a rare IndexWriter thread-safety issue, and fixes to the faceting and 
   highlighting modules.

Note: The Apache Software Foundation uses an extensive mirroring network for
distributing releases.  It is possible that the mirror you are using may not
have replicated the release yet.  If that is the case, please try another
mirror.  This also goes for Maven access.

Happy holidays and happy searching,

Lucene/Solr developers
