Lucene4c 0.02: Compressed File Streams!

Lucene4c 0.02 escaped from my Subversion repository into the wild today.

This release adds support for the compressed file stream directory format used by modern versions of Lucene, recasts the public interfaces in terms of a new abstract directory object similar to that used in Java Lucene, and fixes a staggering number of bugs.

It also brings with it a web site:

Links to the new relase, previous release, and the URL of the project's Subversion repository can all be found there.

Next on the agenda is support for reading the remaining parts of the Lucene index format, after which we can head towards actual useful searching functionality.

Comments, questions, and of course contributions are always welcome.
