This week Apache Solr 5.0 was released. Is there a better excuse to discuss this amazing tool?
agencyQ has been using Solr since the heady days of the pre-beta, when Lucene sounded like a place in Switzerland, and “Solr” seemed so much like a typo. We’re fanboys for sure. 5.0 is just another great release that makes the tool easier to use, easier to manage and incrementally better. But, as with so many technologies its strength isn’t what it does, but what you can make it do. Let’s see how this plays into the agencyQ belief that the Internet isn’t finished and change is inevitable, so go plan for it already.
