We are pleased to announce Manticore Search 3.5.4 is out, this is our 6th and final release of 2020.
If you use Manticore Search real-time indexes you know that there's command OPTIMIZE INDEX which does index compaction. Manticore 3.5.4 introduces automatic drop of a disk chunk in a real-time index when OPTIMIZing a real-time index when the chunk is obviously not needed any more (all the documents are suppressed). Previously it still required merging, now the chunk can be just dropped instantly. This is useful in case you maintain retention in your index and delete older documents regularly. Now compacting such indexes will be faster.
👷 Work in progress: fully automated index compaction which you won't have to run externally at all!
Manticore 3.5.4 includes 10 bug fixes. Check if any of them looks familiar to you and upgrade!
