12
13 == Solr is the default search engine ==
14
15 We have redesigned the Solr search page to include faceted search and we improved the display of the advanced search options and the search results.

18
19 The Solr search module now automatically indexes all modifications made to the wiki. A synchronization background job is started at each XWiki startup to make sure the solr index and the database are in sync (only updates what needs to be updated). The manual indexing in the administration UI should also be a lot more stable since all the actual reading of wiki documents and their indexing is now done in a safe background thread.

21 {{image reference="solr-admin.png" width="400px"/}}
22
23 Entities are now indexed with the list of supported locales (among the available locales). This means that if your current locale is "fr_FR" you will find all entities that you would have seen when the current locale is "fr_FR". For example if a document does not have any "fr_FR" explicit version you will still find the version you would have seen when going to that document (generally the default version of the document or the "fr" version of the document if any since the parent locale of "fr_FR" is "fr"). We call it locale inheritance.

25 See the documentation for the [[Solr Search Application>>doc:extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application]] for more details.
26
27 == Menu Application ==
28
29 We have rewritten the [[Navigation Menu Wiki Macro>>doc:extensions:Extension.Navigation Menu Wiki Macro]] and the [[Navigation Menu Config Application>>doc:extensions:Extension.NavigationMenuConfig]] into a single application that can help you create navigation menus to be displayed either horizontally as a top bar after the page header or vertically in a side panel. See the documentation page of the new [[Menu Application>>doc:extensions:Extension.Menu Application]] for details.

100 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
