The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the
Apache Maven Indexer, version 6.2.0.

Apache Maven Indexer (former Sonatype Nexus Indexer) is the de facto standard for producing indexes
of Maven repositories. The Indexes are produced and consumed by all major tools in the ecosystem.

Most notable changes:

  • IndexReader provides OOTB resource handlers
  • Search API w/ 2 backends
  • Bugs squashed

IMPORTANT: Next release planned will use the Lucene version to 9.x, and
that will imply Java 11. Hence, this is the LAST planned Java 8 release of
Maven Indexer.
