1.0.0 Released Today we are proud to announce the release of Elasticsearch 1.0.0 GA, based on Lucene 4.6.1. This release is the culmination of 9 months of work with almost 8,000 commits by 183 contributors! A big thank you to everybody who has made this release possible. Spry framework for Ajax When Adobe first introduced Spry, our goal was to bring Ajax capabilities to the web design community, allowing designers to create web pages that provided a richer experience for the end user. As we know, however, the web evolves at a blistering pace. Over the last couple of years, frameworks such as JQuery have evolved to encompass many of the capabilities originally envisaged for Spry, making Spry as a standalone offering less relevant.
