EXT:solr 5.1.0 has been released
We're happy to announce the release of Apache Solr for TYPO3 (EXT:solr) version 5.1.0. This release ships a few bugfixes and smaller features
New in this Release
The focus of this release was to provide the new features from the codesprint and bugfixes from the issue tracker. Beside that, we've added a variants feature that could be used together with the upcomming solrfal release 3.2 as one approach to avoid duplicated files in the search frontend.
This feature adds a new optional field variantId that is filled with type/uid and can be used for collapsing by default.
The following example shows the required typoscript configuration that is needed:
variants = 1
expand = 1
variantField = variantId
limit = 10
The collapsing can be used to collapse on numeric and string fields, text fields are not supported for collapsing by Solr.
Note: You need to update your solrconfig and schema to use the new field variantId. When you include the TS Template "Everything on", variants are active. You need to reindex in this case to make sure that the field is filled correctly.
During the transition from forge to github, we've moved the rest of the documentation to our rst documentation.
During the codesprint in Frankfurt a new statistics module was added for that backend that allows you to get some usefull insights
of your search installation.
- Which terms are the most frequent search terms?
- Which terms are frequently searched but deliver no result?
During the codesprint several UX improvements in the backend module have been done:
Replace content element wizard icon with svg icon:
Make init connections icon use SVG:
Backend module layout fixes:
- Makes sure everything is aligned properly
- Removes some whitespace, giving the module content more room
Bugfix: absRefPrefix auto in cli mode with webroot different from PATH_site
When you are using absRefPrefix auto and index in cli mode and you webroot differs from PATH_site you have the possibility to configure a
webroot in the scheduler task to make absRefPrefix=auto work in this case
Bugfix: Keep selected site in scheduler task
When a site in the scheduler task was selected the selection could get lost.
In the next release (6.0) we will focus on the integration of the latest Apache Solr Version (currently 6.1.0)
Like always this release would not have been possible without the help from our
awesome community. These are the contributors for this release.
