Mar 29, 2008. 0.9.8-rc2 released; and 0.9.9 teaser
0.9.8 is getting closer and closer to release tag, and today we're publishing the next release candidate. The feature freeze finally happened. Since RC1, 0.9.8 branch is only getting bugfixes; this is the list of changes that RC2 introduces:
0.9.8-rc2 source and Win32 binaries are available from Downloads page. This time I'm also including Win32 binaries with PostgreSQL support, and Win32 MySQL+SphinxSE binary.
But of course we did not spend three weeks on just bugfixes. Major new features are already being added to 0.9.9 branch. We've implemented 64-bit attributes support and per-query attribute overrides there. The things that are in progress include support of arbitrary expressions for groupby keys, and long-awaited config reload on SIGHUP (that should eliminate the need to restart searchd). Going to publicly release 0.9.9 once those are finalized; but even earlier beta testers are welcome as always.
Also it's about time to finish preparing my talk on Sphinx for the MySQL UC 2008.. not to mention the demo for MySQL Expo. Meet you there!
Update: just noticed class-B bug in extended query parser (OR operator occurring immediately after phrase operator was wrongly treated as a keyword). RC2 sources and binaries on the site are fixed now. Also, the fixed version got nice r1234 revision tag. Sorry for the incovenience to those who already grabbed r1231.
