Acquia Podcast 16: Robert Douglass on Apache Solr and other Search Back Ends

Apache Solr is a powerful and flexible mechanism for performing site search on a Drupal site. Join us as we talk with Robert Douglass about all things Solr in Drupal, including new features and functionality and future development plans. Also, as a bonus, you will hear Robert use the word "de-baconify" in the context of Solr and Drupal.

What is not clear from this podcast is if the Acquia Search for Drupal 7 will or will not include Nutch based crawl-indexing of external non-Drupal sites.
