0.19.9 is out. You can download it here. It contains several bug fixes but also new features, including:
New experimental support for
snappy compression on top of the current
lzf. Changing to use it is as simple as setting
snappy. Note, anything already compressed with
lzf will still work correctly.
text renamed to
text query name gave it great injustice, as it nicely also handles dates and numeric types as well for example. It was renamed to
match in order to better reflect what it actually does, with backward support for the
text name as well.
On top of that there is now support for multi_match query, allowing to more easily run
match queries on several fields without the verbosity of using
bool query to wrap it.
New API called explain, allowing to easily check how and why a specific document matches a query, or even understand why a specific document does not match a specific query.
Several networking enhancements geared towards reducing further the amount of buffer copies while doing network operations, and better defaults for network buffer sizes.
