essentially doing a block join and moving from parents to children, or
children to parents before calculating the facet data.
Major improvements in performance of the new Facet Module / JSON Facet API.

[Announce] Apache Solr 4.6 with RankingAlgorithm 1.5.2 available now with complex-lsa algorithm (simulates human language acquisition and recognition)

Hi!

I am very excited to announce the availability of Solr 4.6 with 
RankingAlgorithm 1.5.2.

Solr 4.6 with RankingAlgorithm 1.5.2 includes the new algorithm 
complex-lsa. complex-lsa simulates human language acquisition and 
recognition (see demo <http://solr-ra.tgels.org/rankingsearchlsa.jsp>) 
and can retrieve semantically related/hidden relationships between 
terms, sentences, paragraphs, chapters, books, images, etc. Three new 
similarities, TERM_SIMILARITY, DOCUMENT_SIMILARITY, 
TERM_DOCUMENT_SIMILARITY enable these with improved precision.

Solr 4.6 with RankingAlgorithm 1.5.2 also includes realtime-search with 
multiple granularities. realtime-search is very fast NRT and allows you 
to not only lookup a document by id but also allows you to search in 
realtime, see http://tgels.org/realtime-nrt.jsp. The update performance 
is about 70,000 docs / sec. The query performance is in ms, allows you 
to  query a 10m wikipedia index (complete index) in <50 ms.

RankingAlgorithm 1.5.2 with complex-lsa supports the entire Lucene Query 
Syntax, ± and/or boolean/dismax/glob/regular 
expression/wildcard/fuzzy/prefix/suffix queries with boosting, etc. and 
is compatible with the new Lucene 4.6 api.

You can get more information about complex-lsa and realtime-search 
performance from here:
