Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Statement of intent to move to Lucene 6.1 for M4

Hi Sopot,

If I understand correctly, the pre-built index is not forward (or backward) compatible? For example, if I build the index for a documentation plugin with Eclipse 4.6, the index won't work with Eclipse 4.7 and vice versa? In this case, for Oxygen, it's probably preferable to build indexes always with 4.7 even if a documentation plugin is intended to be also installed in Eclipse 4.6 (some projects many compatibility with some older Eclipse versions). Eclipse 4.6 users will get a performance hit but that should be the only consequence. Let me know if I misunderstood.

As stated below, the code in was moved to consume Lucene 6.1 API. See the closing comment for a short summary.

I urge the other projects to move to this newer Lucene also and I'm open to assist if there is any question or issue in doing so. Feel free to add me on CC on the respective bugs if assistance is needed.

Best regards,
