June 2011, Apache Solr 3.2™ available
The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Solr 3.2.

Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from 
the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text 
search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database 
integration, rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search. 
Solr is highly scalable, providing distributed search and index replication, 
and it powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's 
largest internet sites.

This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and
improvements, some of which are highlighted below.  The release
is available for immediate download at:

See the CHANGES.txt file included with the release for a full list of
details as well as instructions on upgrading.
