  • Document::add_posting(): Fix bugs with the change in 1.4.8 to more efficiently handle insertion of a batch of extra positions in ascending order. These could lead to missing positions and corrupted encoded positional data.

Remote backend

  • Avoid hang if remote connection shutdown fails by not waiting for the connection to close in this situation. Seems to fix occasional hangs seen on macOS. Patch from Germán M. Bravo.


  • Fix to build with upcoming PHP 7.3 release, which changes array_init() to not return a value instead of always returning the constant SUCCESS. We were checking this return value but no longer do.
