Our development team works hard to ensure that SearchStax Managed Solr continues to meet the business needs of our customers and we want to announce support for the latest version of Apache Solr (version 8.8.2) and six new Azure regions.

Editor’s Note: Managed Solr is now SearchStax Cloud. It is the same great product that lets developers set up and deploy Solr infrastructure in minutes.

Support for Apache Solr 8.8.2

Managed Solr now supports Apache Solr is 8.8.2, the latest version of Solr. 

The Solr 8.8.2 release includes the following major bug fixes:

  • SOLR-15249: Properly set ZK ACLs on /security.json
  • SOLR-15233: Set doAs param in ConfigurableInternodeAuthHadoopPlugin
  • SOLR-15217: Use shardsWhitelist in ReplicationHandler
  • SOLR-15288: Hardening NODEDOWN event in collections using PerReplicaState

Solr 8.8.2 also fixes known vulnerabilities with the Replication handler, leakage of configured authentication and unprivileged users. Upgrading to Solr 8.8.2 or applying the patches corrects these vulnerabilities.
