> Lucene 3.1 Release Highlights
> 
> * Numerous performance improvements: faster exact PhraseQuery; merging
>  favors segments with deletions; primary key lookup is faster;
>  IndexWriter.addIndexes(Directory[]) uses file copy instead of
>  merging; various Directory performance improvements; compound file
>  is dynamically turned off for large segments; fully deleted segments
>  are dropped on commit; faster snowball analyzers (in contrib);
>  ConcurrentMergeScheduler is more careful about setting priority of
>  merge threads.
> 
> * ReusableAnalyzerBase makes it easier to reuse TokenStreams
>  correctly.
> 
> * Improved Analysis capabilities: Improved Unicode support, including
>  Unicode 4, more friendly term handling (CharTermAttribute), easier
>  object reuse and better support for protected words in lossy token
>  filters (e.g. stemmers).
> 
> * ConstantScoreQuery now allows directly wrapping a Query.
> 
> * IndexWriter is now configured with a new separate builder API,
>  IndexWriterConfig.  You can now control IndexWriter's previously
>  fixed internal thread limit by calling setMaxThreadStates.
> 
> * IndexWriter.getReader is replaced by IndexReader.open(IndexWriter).
>  In addition you can now specify whether deletes should be resolved
>  when you open an NRT reader.
> 
> * MultiSearcher is deprecated; ParallelMultiSearcher has been
>  absorbed directly into IndexSearcher.
> 
> * On 64bit Windows and Solaris JVMs, MMapDirectory is now the
>  default implementation (returned by FSDirectory.open).
>  MMapDirectory also enables unmapping if the JVM supports it.
> 
> * New TotalHitCountCollector just counts total number of hits.
> 
> * ReaderFinishedListener API enables external caches to evict entries
>  once a segment is finished.
> 
> Note: The Apache Software Foundation uses an extensive mirroring network for distributing releases.  It is possible that the mirror you are using may not have replicated the release yet.  If that is the case, please try another mirror.  This also goes for Maven access.
