This is the fifth release candidate for the Search API Solr Search module. It includes several bug fixes and new features compared to the RC 4 release. If no new bugs are discovered, this will be the last release candidate, followed by the stable 1.0 release.
Most notably, #1676224: Support Apache Solr 4.0 adds support for Solr 4. Note, however, that Solr 4.3 currently isn't supported yet (see #1992806: What to do about Solr 4.3 incompatibility?). There are no known problems with earlier versions of Solr 4, though, and they add vast improvements compared to Solr 3.x.
Also, #1986284: Update common configs to the latest version changed the config files again, which you should therefore update on your Solr server. (Don't forget to restart the Solr server afterwards.) The changes are backwards-compatible, though, re-indexing is not necessary!Read more
This is the fourth release candidate of the Search API Solr Search module, containing some bug fixes and new features.
Most notably, #1846254: Remove the SolrPhpClient dependency removed the dependency on the SolrPhpClient library. (Note: It's therefore important to run update.php immediately after upgrading the module to this version.) This module can therefore now be enabled like any other module, without installing any third-party libraries. After upgrading to this version, you can safely remove the SolrPhpClient library from your server.
#1897386: Update the common schema changed the used configuration files somewhat. You should therefore replace the configuration files and restart the Solr server. The changes are backwards-compatible, though, re-indexing is therefore not necessary (if you are upgrading from RC3 – upgrades from earlier versions still require a re-indexing, as noted in the RC3 release notes).
If no new major bugs are reported for this release, a stable 1.0 release will be created soon.Read more
This is the release candidate 3 for the Search API Solr search project. It contains both bug fixes and new features.
The largest change are the new configuration files introduced in #1509380: Adopt common solrconfig.xml and schema.xml files for Apache Solr Search Integration and Search API Solr. To use this release, you will therefore have to replace your Solr's configuration files with the new ones provided with this release, restart the Solr Server and re-index all data.
The advantage is that we are now using the same configuration files as the Apache Solr Search Integration project, making Solr hosting for Drupal easier. However, the indexed data is not compatible. You will still have to use the Search API to index the data you want to search with it.
This release contains an important security fix. Users of the module are strongly encouraged to update to this version as soon as possible.
If you are using an older version, incorrectly escaped error messages might lead to your site being vulnerable to an XSS attack. Note, however, that this can only occur if you somehow allow users to specify the used internal field identifiers (e.g., through Views exposed sorts or the old (deprecated) Search API Facets module).
This version is needed to work with the RC 1 release of the Search API.
The following changes were made since Beta 4:
This beta release contains bug fixes as well as some new features, like support for OR facets and for getting result data directly from Solr.
Note: schema.xml and solrconfig.xml were changed, so you will have to update them in your Solr server, restart it and maybe also re-index the data (at least to use all new features).Read more
The Beta 3 release contains some new bug fixes, as well as new features like "More like this" functionality and spellchecking support.
