Inspired by these questions on the Search forum and stackoverflow I decided
to blog about different solutions for the problem using only the tools available in Search right now (4.1.1.Final). But let's start with the problem.
A bugfix release for Hibernate Search 4.1 ! Some of you have been reporting reduced performance after migrating from 3.4 or 4.0, which was not expected at all as the internals got smarter at each release. It turns out there was a quite critical bug: file handle leaks.
Another CR for Hibernate Search 4.1 is ready! Even being in candidate release phase, we introduced something more than the usual minor bugfixes, as the following improvements are too nice to delay and technically not very risky.
We have decided to do a second release candidate for Hibernate Search 4.1. We fixed a couple of issues related to
clustering and how it works in a modular environment like JBoss AS 7. In particular, we made sure it works fine for JBoss AS 7.1.
