# 0.19.0.RC1 Released

elasticsearch version 0.19.0.RC1 is out. You can download it here. It is a major release candidate release of elasticsearch.

This is the first time we release a “release candidate” for elasticsearch. The aim is to get users to try it out, fix any problems found with it, and release a final 0.19.0 release as soon as possible.

Major features include improved indexing performance, more control over shard allocation, more statistics and simpler API for stats, an update API that accepts a script to perform an update on a document, better state storage when using local gateway, and many bug fixes.
