Apache Lucene.Net Graduates!

Congratulations to the Apache Lucene.Net Developers and Community! We've made it out of incubation. 

Seems like a relatively quick road; About a year an a half ago the Lucene.Net project was in danger of being retired. A few people brought it back and Lucene.Net entered the Apache Incubator. We've had a couple of releases, 2.9.2, 2.9.4, 2.9.4g and we're nearly ready to release big changes with 3.0.3. We've added new committers and have worked toward rebuilding our community.

At the August 15th board meeting, the board voted unanimously to accept our graduation resolution, officially moving us out of the Incubator. Over the next couple of weeks, we've be moving all of our resources out of the incubator into our new permanent home, mailing lists will be updated, website update, svn repositories, etc.



Cool. It's a fantastic project and it's great to see it continue.

Hello, I'm sorry this is probably late, but the new website is located at

Prescott, you should really try to fix the old website address. This is quite critical to the ranking of this project in the search engines and possible for the survival of the project. Just putting a redirect on the old url to new also suffices.

What about new .NET-Implementations of Lucene? Version 3.0.3 is a bit old now ;-)

Is this project "Lucene.Net" still active? I saw the latest version is already several years old.
