Updated search server now live

We’ve just updated our search servers to the latest version. Thanks to Paul Taylor for his long hard work porting our code to Lucene 4.1. Big thanks also to Murdos and Nikki for helping with this release!

Also, we’ve installed a small gigabit ethernet switch for our search server cluster so that we can move new search indexes around much faster. Hopefully we will see indexes updating in just over 2 hours from now on.

Read on for all the details of this release:
