Manticore Search 2.8.2 GA release

We are pleased to announce the release of Manticore Search 2.8.2 GA.

Prebuilt packages available for Debian,Ubuntu, Red Hat/CentOS, Windows and OSX can be downloaded from here.

Major feature

Multi-master synchronous replication for percolate indexes based on Galera library (Percona fork).

Replication requires to set a new searchd directive - data_dir -  used for the internal files of replication and a dedicated listen interface for communication.

Clusters can be created and managed using SphinxQL statements. For more information, please consult the Replication section.

The replication feature should be considered in beta stage, but it does not affect in any way functionality or stability of existing setups. Feedback is welcomed and possible changes should be expected. In future support for RealTime indexes will be added.

Other improvements

OPTION clause of SELECT statement receive new option 'morphology'. Currently only value 'none' can be used  to prevent morphology  on query terms  if index_exact_words is enabled.

SphinxQL is now compatible with latest Connector/J.  For more information about how to setup the connection string, please check MySQL Connectors section.
