Thanks for the tip David!  Will be sure to let the engineer who reverse-engineered Enhanced Retrieval take a look at it.  It does seem ElasticSearch is the way to go, especially now that WMF selected it.

One other search-related aspect of SMW+ we're looking into is how it did autocomplete in the search bar, where it also showed the Category/Class, along with the article/instance name.

I know Yaron is also considering revamping Semantic Drilldown, which is a form of faceted search.  Perhaps all these search-related efforts can be coordinated?

hi Joel,

For your consideration, ElasticSearch also supports geospatial features. It
will certainly make people's lives easier to support just one indexing system.
I ported a system from Solr to ElasticSearch in less than one day.
