Hi, is there a update to base SOLRthe current revision of Solr in CDH 5.x (a fork of Solr 4.1.x while the public Solr project supports only the 5.x and 6.x versions.) When is core SOLR distribution which is part of CDH going to be update. Versin 5.x and 6.x add more valuable functionality which is there is public version. Is there a roadmap available for what is upcoming for SOLR in future release of CDH.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm interested here too. The solr version has remained the same at 4.10.3 since CDH 5.4. There are large improvements in indexing speed between 4.10 and 5.2 as I understand it, so when is this going to happen?

Great, thank you for the information!
I was asking because my project could potentially have an incompatibility with solr 4.10, and I believe 5.2 or higher is the version that would be necessary if that is the case. However, since you've indicated that you do backport
fixes and security patches and even minor features, its possible that the potential issue has already been addressed. I'll be in touch if its not!

I'm expecting a newer version of Solr (hopefully 6.x) as part of CDH 6 in the coming months, noting there are no firm time frames or version informaion available. CDH 6 is a major version and breaking backwards compatability is much more tolerable.

So it's been 16 months since the OP and we're still at 4.10.
Is there any hope of solr 6 soon? My project is getting close to the point we might have to leave Cloudera behind if not, and I really don't want to do that.
