  • The new Sitecore connector provides full crawl and incremental crawl support for versions 8.x and 9.x of the popular Sitecore CMS, indexing both document content and metadata.

  • Many of the values in conf/fusion.properties can now be set using environment variables, enabling you to set them using systemd, Docker, Kubernetes, and so on. Default values are also provided. For example, in api.port = ${API_PORT:-8765}, the default value is 8765 unless API_PORT is defined.
