eZ Find, the enterprise search extension for eZ Publish and wrapper for the Apache Solr search engine, is a highly performant alternative to manually searching through databases. We recently extended eZ Find to support Solr frange queries, and specifically to support minimum relevance values.

In eZ Publish 5.x and eZ Platform, the concept of "view cache" has changed. The "module result" part of it (which was basically page-level caching if we didn't count the pagelayout) has been offloaded to HTTP caching, most often implemented with Varnish. In addition, Cache blocks no longer exist and have been replaced by ESI (Edge Side Includes) blocks.
The persistence caching element -- that is, caching of your actual content from the database -- of the "view cache" still exists, handled by default on the file system through the Stash bundle. Stash also supports memcache (which, as its name suggests, uses memory, and has a much better performance). We use memcache(d) for all of our production sites.

You might have missed this great crowdfunding opportunity, Netgen, through the voice of their very own Ivo Lukac (@ilukac), has launched a crowdfunding initiative to enable the development of the Tags bundle so that it supports eZ Platform UI. First of, I think it’s really great to see this kind of initiative in our ecosystem, and we should all share this news and act quickly! We’re almost out of time, so read on to see why you should click now to support eZ Tags.

Netgen has implemented and maintained eZ Tags, the taxonomy solution for eZ Publish legacy. Some work was done to support the same feature after the eZ Platform release, at least on the field type level, but a full eZ Platform UI support is still missing. We are now launching a crowdfunding campaign to finish implementing the Tags Bundle and open source it to the community.
