Elasticsearch 0.90.9 released

Today, just in time for the holidays, we are happy to announce the release of Elasticsearch 0.90.9, which is based on Lucene 4.6. This is the current stable release in the 0.90 series. You can download it here.

Unfortunately, 0.90.8 had a bug in the cluster-health API which might report too few shards if one of your indices is status `red`. While this doesn't put your data at risk, it might cause sysadmins to suffer a moment of extreme panic.

While we were about it, we found a bug in the terms lookup filter which could, in rare cases, cause search requests to hang. And lastly, a bug was introduced in 0.90.8 which prevented index templates from being loaded when placed under the config directory.

Apologies for the quick re-release, but we hope it makes your holiday more festive and relaxed. Thanks to those who reported these bugs so promptly. Please download 0.90.9 and let us know what you think.
