I'm working in the Hibernate and Infinispan teams at Red Hat, caring about Lucene
integration in products we support, striving to make it easier to use and to
integrate in well known APIs and patterns, and finally to make it scale better;
I love clean and well performing code.
I've been an early adopter of cloud deployments scaling Lucene to a large number
of requests on Amazon EC2 using Hibernate Search, and after that I worked with
JIRA to make it clusterable via Infinispan.
I've lived in Holland, Italy, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Portugal and the UK;
love OSS and socializing with other developers to improve all and any OSS project.
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.
Hibernate Search version 4.1.0.Beta1 was tagged; the most essential change compared to January's release 4.1.0.Alpha1 was HSEARCH-1034, made to allow Infinispan Query to use the fluent Programmatic Mapping API as already available to Hibernate users.
While our focus has been on the exciting new improvements in Hibernate Search 4, since the release of the last stable release 3.4.0.Final we had much interesting feedback from the community, including bugreports and patches.
