Mroonga is a MySQL storage engine that supports fast fulltext search and geolocation search. It is CJK ready. It uses Groonga as a storage and fulltext search engine.

Mroonga 10.09 has been released!

The main changes are as follows.

  • CentOS Added support for MariaDB 10.2.36, 10.3.27, 10.4.17, and 10.5.8

  • CentOS Added support for Percona Server 5.6.50 and 5.7.32.

  • CentOS Added support for MySQL 5.6.50, 5.7.32, and 8.0.22.

    • There are below restrictions in the MySQL8 package.

  • Dropped support for MariaDB 10.1 except Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    • Because MariaDB 10.1 is EOL.
    • However, we have only supported MariaDB 10.1 for Ubintu 18.04 LTS

      • Because MariaDB 10.1 has supported yet on it.
  • Dropped support for CentOS 6.

    • Because CentOS 6 is EOL.
  • mroonga_snippet_html Added support for customizing normalizer.

    • We can use custom normalizer instead of the default normalizer(NromalizerAuto) by using table_name and index_name.

      • We specify target table name to table_name as below.

      • We specify index name that is specified on target table to index_name as below.

        SET NAMES utf8mb4;
        
        CREATE TABLE memos (
        content text,
        fulltext index content_index (content)
        COMMENT 'normalizer "NormalizerNFKC121(\'unify_kana\', true)"'
        ) DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
        
        SELECT mroonga_snippet_html('This is Mroonga(ムルンガ).',
        'memos' as table_name,
        'content_index' as index_name,
        'むるんが') as snippet;
        
        snippet
        <div class="snippet">This is Mroonga<span class="keyword">ムルンガ</span>.</div>
        
      • We can also use mixing search by query and search by keywords by this modification.

      • For example as below, we can highlight keywords that we both specify by AS query and AS snippet.

        SET NAMES utf8mb4;
        SELECT mroonga_snippet_html('Mroonga has two running modes.
        
        One is “storage mode”, that is the default mode, and we use Groonga for both storing data and searching. With this mode, you can have full benefits of Groonga described above, like fast data update, lock-free full text search and geolocation search. But it does not support transactions.
                 
        Another one is “wrapper mode”, that adds full text search function on other storage engines like MyISAM or InnoDB. With this mode, you can use Groonga’s fast full text search with having the benefits of the storage engine, ex. transaction in InnoDB. But you cannot have benefits from Groonga’s read-lock free characteristic. And you might have the performance bottle neck in the storage engine in updating data.',
        'lock storage' AS query,
        'update' AS snippet;
        
         snippet
         <div class="snippet"><span class="keyword">storage</span> mode, that is the default mode, and we use Groonga for both storing data and searching. With this mode, you can have full benefits of Groonga described above, like fast data <span class="keyword">update</span>, <span class="keyword">lock</span>-fr</div><div class="snippet">text search function on other <span class="keyword">storage</span> engines like MyISAM or InnoDB. With this mode, you can use Groongas fast full text search with having the benefits of the <span class="keyword">storage</span> engine, ex. transaction in In</div><div class="snippet">noDB.

Correction

  • We removed the news that "Added support for MariaDB 10.5.5".

    • At first, we announced that "Added support for MariaDB 10.5.5". However, it had been wrong.

    • We modify to use groonga-apt-source instead of groonga-archive-keyring.
    • Because the lintian command recommends using apt-source if a package that it puts files under the /etc/apt/sources.lists.d/.

      • The lintian command is the command which checks for many common packaging errors.
      • Please also refer to the following for the details about installation procedures.
