Lucene Gets Support

I have known for a while that Lucid Imagination was in the works, I guess this article makes it official:

“Lucene and Solr are probably some of the most underestimated players in this market,” said CEO Eric Gries. The Solr search server provides a front end to the core Lucene search engine library.

Lucene is in use at more than 4,000 organizations worldwide, according to Lucid Imagination. But companies that are starting to use the search engine for mission-critical applications can’t rely solely “on the good graces of the [open-source] community” for support and quick bug fixes, Gries said.
