 * Go through the process of making a release
 * Continue building a diverse 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

 * New built-in simple faceted search capabilities without the need
