Yes. Thanks for pointing these out. These are big incompatible changes
that I forgot to mention.

Other changes since 1.01b include:
- ant-only build -- no more makefiles
- addition of lock files--now fully thread & process safe
- addition of German stemmer
- MultiSearcher now supports low-level search API
- added RangeQuery, for term-range searching
- Analyzers can choose tokenizer based on field name
- misc bug fixes.

I need to work up detailed release notes for the final 1.2 release.

Let's see, some short term tasks for the 1.2 release:
- get source code back into releases
- clean up example code
- write release notes

Some mid-term tasks:
- add contributed Chinese analyzers
- add Hits.SetOrdering() support
- add some term highlighting support

Longer term tasks:
- add JDBC-based Directory
- optimize simple conjunctive queries
- optionally store document vectors in index

Have I missed your favorite?

Re: Interest in Lucene specialists.. [ In reply to ]
I'm interested in exploring deeper if Lucene is suitable for one of our projects and would like to leverage specialist expertise. Is there any forum where specialist Lucene expertize (evaluation and dev support) can be sought on commercial terms.

not sure if this is the right forum to post this question and if so, my apologies in advance with a request to be redirected to the appropriate forum.

please advise..
