[ANNOUNCE] Lucene 1.4.3 released


I'd like to officially announce Lucene 1.4.3. This release fixes two bugs, 
the list of changes is so short that I will simply paste it here:

 1. The JSP demo page (src/jsp/results.jsp) now properly escapes error
    messages which might contain user input (e.g. error messages about 
    query parsing). If you used that page as a starting point for your
    own code please make sure your code also properly escapes HTML
    characters from user input in order to avoid so-called cross site
    scripting attacks.

  2. QueryParser changes in 1.4.2 broke the QueryParser API. Now the old 
     API is supported again.

The source code and binaries can be downloaded from
http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/jakarta/lucene/

Project website:
http://jakarta.apache.org/lucene/docs/index.html

Regards
 Daniel

Contributing to the Apache Software Foundation


Greetings, members of the Apache community.  As the end of the year
approaches, we would like to remind you that you don't have to write
code or documentation to contribute to the Apache Software Foundation.

This is the time of year that many people look to donate money to
charity not only out of the goodness of their heart, but for the
purposes of tax deductions, which makes Tax Day just that much nicer
in the United States.

The Apache Software Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit,
and if you pay taxes in the United States, any money that you
contribute is tax deductible.

You can contribute via PayPal:
     http://www.apache.org/foundation/contributing.html#Paypal

Or by check:
     http://www.apache.org/foundation/contributing.html#SnailMail

For all the details, please see the contributing page, located here:
     http://www.apache.org/foundation/contributing.html

Many companies have "Matching Gift Programs" that will double or
triple your tax-deductible contributions.  Check with your personnel
office to find out if your company offers this--they should be able to
provide you with a form that you can fill out and send in with your
contribution.  If your employer wishes to donate to the ASF, please
have them contact us at fundraising <at> apache.org
