Xapian::Stemnow recognises "nb" and "nn" as additional codes for the Norwegian stemmer.
Xapian::QueryParsernow correctly parses a wildcarded term in between two other terms (ticket#484).
OP_ORcould skip a matching document if it decayed to
OP_AND_MAYBEduring the match in some cases. Fixes ticket#476.
OP_XORwith non-leaf subqueries could skip matching documents in some cases, and
OP_XORof three or more sub-queries could return incorrect weights. Fixes ticket#475.
OP_ORis now more efficient if a subquery is potentially expensive (e.g.
PostingSource). A 10-fold speed-up with
OP_VALUE_RANGEhas been observed.
- Install files to make Xapian easier to use with cmake.
- On x86 processors, Xapian now defaults to using SSE2 FP instructions. This avoids issues with excess precision and it a bit faster too. If you need to support processors without SSE2 (this means pre-Pentium4 for Intel) then configure with --disable-sse. (ticket#387)
