Announcing OpenGrok 0.8 RC1 !

Hello all
we're proudly announcing the release candidate 1 for opengrok 0.8, get it here:
or in SVR4 form
Rough draft of new features:
- javadb history cache (gives dir history, file listing per changesets, etc.)
- multiple project search
- upgraded lucene to 2.4.1
- improved OpenGrok script (2 commands should be enough to get your sources indexed and running in tomcat/glassfish : ./OpenGrok deploy ; ./OpenGrok index )
- auto generated opensearch (after a search you get a generated header with appropriate projects selected, so you can easily add it to your search providers)
- several UI improvements (line # toggle, line # is a link now, hover over revision in annotate shows message, show/hide files touched by changeset, doubleclicking/Enter on project takes you to its xref)
Note , that you SHOULD reindex from scratch, for javadb historycache setup read
More bugs fixed here(just the ones tagged with closed in 0.8, there were definitely more):
