The Lucene PMC is pleased to announce the release of Apache Lucene 6.3.0.
Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for
nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially
This release contains numerous bug fixes, optimizations, and
improvements, some of which are highlighted below. The release is
available for immediate download at:
* A brand new "UnifiedHighlighter" derivative of the
PostingsHighlighter that can consume offsets from postings, term
vectors, or analysis. It can highlight phrases as accurately as the
standard Highlighter. Light term vectors can be used with offsets in
postings for fast wildcard (MultiTermQuery) highlighting.
* SimpleQueryParser now parses '*' to MatchAllDocsQuery
* FuzzyQuery now matches all terms within the specified edit distance,
even if they are short terms
* Points do not store the implicit split dimension in the 1-dimension
case. This saves between 6% memory for the largest types such an
InetAddressPoint to 33% for the smaller types such as HalfFloatPoint.
Note: The Apache Software Foundation uses an extensive mirroring
network for distributing releases. It is possible that the mirror you
