Acquia Search will be upgraded to include new libraries to support search schema customizations for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. These new libraries are available only to Acquia Search customers who are eligible to deploy custom
schema.xml files, that is, Acquia Network Enterprise and Acquia Cloud Enterprise customers. For more information, see Custom Solr configuration.
No downtime is expected for customer sites or search functionality. However, during the upgrade, search indexes will be in read-only mode and therefore will not be updated with new or changed content for a period of 1 to 10 minutes.
The upgrade adds a set of libraries that are valuable in customizing the Apache Solr schema.xml file for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. By default, Solr was built with Western languages in mind. However, in some other languages, such as Chinese or Japanese, words are not necessarily split by spaces. Another important difference is that some characters in these languages look the same, but mean something very different. Chinese, Japanese, and Korean have multiple meanings for some characters, so searches should return appropriate results for any of those meanings.

If you have more than one search index linked to your subscription, the Acquia Search page at https://insight.acquia.com/acquia-search now shows combined statistics for all of the search indexes in your subscription. Before, it showed only your first index size (and ignored the others). Therefore, if you have multiple indexes, your usage graphs will show an increase, because they now include the sums of the searches, documents, and storage usage of all your indexes. For more information, see Viewing search usage and statistics.
