Hi Aki,

I didn't yet think about using FTS either but followed a bit the thread
about developing the Xapian plugin.
How stable is that now? says above:

"The following FTS indexers (in preferred order) are supported"

but fts-xapian is listed below all others and Solr at the top.

Is the wiki just outdated?
