Spatial Solr Plugin 2.0-RC4 Released

February 11th, 2011 by

Having worked with a number of SSP users over the past few weeks, we are pleased to announce that SSP 2.0-RC4 has been released. This bug fix release addresses a number of problems identified by our users:

  • GeoDistanceComponent opening IndexReaders and not closing them
  • Solr returning all fields of documents rather than just those requested
  • Invalid bounding box range queries being created when the boxes crossed a meridian

Note, as part of the improvements to the GeoDistanceComponent, it is now necessary to configure the component as well. Please see the plugin’s documentation for more information.

We recommend that all SSP 2.0 users upgrade to this new release.

Again, I’d like to thank our users for helping us identify and resolve these issues.

    Chris, thank you. I did not find this in documentation, but it worth to note that to use the “distance” field, the “lat” and “lng” fields must be included to the fl list; otherwise the will be returned.

    In case anyone is interested in polygons/polylines search on top of the SSP 2.0 RC4; I created a project to support such a thing (with certain limitations). The patch to the SSP source code is here:
