Highlight: Lucene 4 Indexing
We have completed a major upgrade of our search engine technology from Lucene version 3 to version 4. This new version improves scalability, allowing us to handle more users and to add new data collections without response times degrading. Lucene 4 utilises native faceting of our data, laying the groundwork for other exciting features in the future.
