We're in Boston for JUDCon and Red Hat Summit; Emmanuel is on stage coding live a nice new demo using Hibernate Search to combine full-text with geographic filtering. It will be contributed to JDF quickstarts but you can already get the sources.
The JGroups backend was refactored and also introduced an option to use it as a synchronous backend.
It is now possible to not include the Hibernate Search jars in your application but add it as a set of Modules to the application server. Details for this deployment can be found in the new chapter in the reference documentation. Of course you can still include the jars in your applications if you prefer that.
While fixing a bug in the NRT backend we also found an opportunity for a great performance improvement. I posted some figures on a previous blog post.
The API was made more consistent, the documentation got some love: no big highlights but we got some nice polishing all around.
All dependencies where updated; in particular we took care to be compatible with latest JBoss EAP 6.1 release and its associated versions of Infinispan and JGroups.
The complete list of changes can be found on the JIRA release notes.
