(That link says "1", but it apparently correctly redirects to EAR #2.)
My recent blog posts over the past two weeks detailed the changes from EAR#1. A lot of them were formatting and indexing, but a couple more scripting update processor examples, and a new "Solr Hot Spots" preface section to point the reader to interesting sections worth checking out, such as the grammars for the various query parsers, a complete list of functions, and complete lists of char filters, tokenizers, token filters, and update processors.
The next EAR will be in approximately two weeks, contents TBD.
If you have also purchased EAR#1, there is no need to rush out and pick up EAR#2. I mean, the technical content changes were only modest, and EAR#3 will be out in another two weeks anyway. That said, EAR#2 is a significant improvement over EAR#1.
