What's new in eZ Find 2.2

Since 2.1 some changes have been implemented in eZ Find.

Solr update

The backend search engine is updated to 1.5-dev.

New and improved settings in ezfind.ini:

  • The parameters for the configuration group [Highlighting] are enhanced:
    • SnippetsPerField: sets the maximum number of highlighted snippets to generate per field (attribute)
    • FragmentSize: sets the maximum number of characters to use for a highlight snippet
  • For the SolrFieldMapSettings configuration group the following settings were added:
    • DatatypeMap
    • DatatypeMapSort: sets mapping for datatypes to sortable fields, which usually entails very little transformations at index time. If this setting is not specified, the search mapping is used.
    • DatatypeMapFacet
    • DatatypeMapFilter
  • The setting "DisableDeleteCommits" was also added to the [IndexOptions] configuration group. When using this option keep in mind that deleted objects may still show up in search results, which might lead to (fatal) errors. So if you set DisableDeleteCommits to true, make sure you have a frequent commit cronjob enabled to minimize errors.
  • The setting "CommitWithin" was added. If it is set to a positive value, the delayed commits will be added with every addObject call. If "CommitWithin" is set to 0, which is the default setting, the setting will be ignored. The value is set in milliseconds.
