Solr

15 Nov 2006

Solr is a Lucene based search server supporting XML/HTTP APIs, faceted
search, highlighting, caching and replication.  Solr entered
incubation in January 2006.

Top items to resolve before graduation:
 * Go through the process of making a release
 * Continue building a diverse community

Community
 * Solr continues to see increased adoption and very positive feedback
   and contributions from a growing community: 195 solr-user
   subscribers and 95 solr-dev.
 * Patches from 10 different non-CNET contributors have been committed.
 * ApacheCon US 2006: "Faceted Searching with Apache Solr" session,
   Solr incubator talk, Lucene BOF
 * Other Presentations like "Subversion and Solr - Your Next Content
   Repository?" and "Solr and Faceted Search"
 * Integration packages (such as acts_as_solr maintained by others at
   rubyforge)

Code
 * New built-in simple faceted search capabilities without the need
   for custom code.
 * Output XML via XSL transformer, compressed fields, improved
   parameter handling, more querying options and performance optimizations.

The Incubation [http://incubator.apache.org/projects/solr.html STATUS]
file is up-to-date, with all items in the project setup category long
since completed.

Technical: Solr is both maturing and gaining new capabilities, such as
highlighted context snippets, and JSON output support.  See
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/solr/trunk/CHANGES.txt?view=markup

Community: Solr is seeing good growth in the number of users and
contributors, and we are in the process of voting in a new committer.
Other community building efforts include Yonik Seeley's talk at
ApacheCon EU, Chris Hostetter's scheduled talk at ApacheCon US, and
articles written by other Solr contributors such as
