Ok great, so if I understand correctly, new features in lucene are only added to the latest development branch?
btw. after upgrading commons-codec, you might also want to take a look at LUCENE-6058.
Thomas Neidhart yeah, new features go into 5.x branch / trunk. Thank you for the pointer!
Bulk close after 5.0 release.
