Sphinx 2.1.5-release

The maintanance release for 2.1.x series addresses several issues, the most important being:

  • expand_keywords option lost in disk chunks of RT indexes (bug #1718)
  • crash in queries to distributed indexes with GROUP BY on multiple values (bug #1799)
  • indextool fails to handle indexes with lemmatizer morphology (bug #1848)

Full documentation can be found at the 2.1.5 manual page.


A new version in 2.2.x series will be released soon, which will bring several new big features, among them increased support for ALTER command, a plugin system, and optimizations for infix searches. Stay tuned!
