Call to Action

This release fixes an Out Of Memory problem when re-indexing some kind of repositories.

The problem has been reported previously by the Community in different ways:

If you are experiment problems with the amount of RAM consumed by SOLR or your contentstore GZ files are bigger than 10 MB, you could be affected by this problem.

Note that when upgrading to Search Services 1.4.3, it's not mandatory to perform a full re-index for SOLR. However, if you re-index your repository, you'll save storage space and you'll increase the performance of the service.

Anyway is strongly recommended to upgrade to Search Services 1.4.3 from any other SOLR 6 based release.
