Release notes

Important note: There is still a critical issue in this release: #1081244: Debug line still contained in database backend. Please wait for the Beta 7 release with this issue fixed, that will be available in the next few days.

This release contains both a lot of bug fixes and a bunch of new features. There are a few API changes, too, but those shouldn't break backwards-compatibility in any way.
New features include:

  • A new Views display for displaying static facet blocks linking to the search view — e.g., for providing a landing page with a list (or tag cloud) of popular terms/topics/authors.
  • A new data alteration for indexing the entity as it would look like when viewed in the browser.
  • UI improvements for (among others) facet blocks, the "Current search" block, the "Aggregated fulltext fields" data alterations and search pages.

All changes since Beta 5
