New versions of Lucene Core – Java-based indexing and search tool formerly known as Lucene Java – and Solr – an enterprise search server – are now available from the Apache Lucene project.

New features are available on both products. Lucene 3.3 has better spellchecking, support for merging results from multiple shards, and an optimized implementation of KStem.  Solr 3.3 has the ability to collapse groups and fields and an automaton-based suggest/autocomplete implementation.

We found this interesting news on iProgrammer in their article, “Lucene Core and Solr updated to 3.3.” The Apache Lucene project is a collection of open-source search software consisting of Lucene Core, Solr,  PyLucene and Open Relevance Project.
