By the way, if somebody of the other involved developers want to provide me
some PPT Slides about the other new features in Lucene 2.9 (NRT, future
Flexible Indexing), I would be happy!
> Uwe Schindler, Lucene 2.9 Developments: Numeric Search, Per-Segment- and
> Near-Real-Time Search, new TokenStream API: Uwe Schindler presents some
> additions to Lucene 2.9. In the first half he will talk about fast
> and date range queries (NumericRangeQuery, formerly TrieRangeQuery) and
> their usage in geospatial search applications like the Publishing Network
> for Geoscientific & Environmental Data (PANGAEA). In the second half of
> talk, Uwe will highlight various improvements to the internal search
> implementation for near-real-time search. Finally, he will present the new
> TokenStream API, based on AttributeSource/Attributes that make indexing
> pluggable. Future
> developments in the Flexible Indexing Area will make use of it. Uwe will
> show a Tokenizer that uses custom attributes to index XML files into
> document fields based on XML element names as a possible use-case.
