We are happy to announce that earlier this afternoon we completed the final stages of the migration of the Full Text API to our new ElasticSearch infrastructure! No changes were made to functionality or interface and users should notice absolutely no difference other than the system being immensely faster now. Relevancy ranking should also be dramatically better.
This marks the completion of our previous V1 APIs over to ElasticSearch! We will continue to support these V1 APIs through the coming year, though we strongly recommend that all new development transition to the forthcoming V2 APIs given their immense new capabilities and that all future development efforts will focus on this new API generation.
