We are excited to announce the release of Elasticsearch 6.0.0-rc2, based on Lucene 7.0.1. This is the sixth in a series of pre-6.0.0 releases designed to let you test out your application with the features and changes coming in 6.0.0, and to give us feedback about any problems that you encounter. Open a bug report today and become an Elastic Pioneer.
IMPORTANT: This is a pre-release and is intended for testing purposes only. Indices created in this version will not be compatible with Elasticsearch 6.0.0 GA. Upgrading 6.0.0-rc2 to any other version is not supported.
