Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. Apache Lucene is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform. Apache Lucene is an open source project available for free download. Jenkins is providing continuous integration capabilities to the Apache Lucene project. It is responsible for running nightly builds, tests, javadocs, and code coverage reports. Both binary and source releases for the latest version of Lucene are available from the Apache Mirrors. Archives for all past versions of Lucene are available at the Apache archives.

The lucene-VERSION.zip or .tar.gz (where VERSION is the version number of the release, e.g. 3.0.1) file contains the lucene-core jar file, html documentation, a demo application (see the "Getting Started" section) and various jar files containing contributed code. The lucene-VERSION-src.zip or .tar.gz contains the full source code for that version. Apache Lucene runs on Java 8 or greater. It is also recommended to always use the latest update version of the users’ Java VM, because bugs may affect Lucene. With all Java versions it is strongly recommended to not use experimental -XX JVM options. CPU, disk and memory requirements are based on the many choices made in implementing Lucene (document size, number of documents, and number of hits retrieved to name a few). The IRC channel can be used for online discussion about Lucene related stuff, but developers should be careful to transfer all the official decisions or useful discussions to the issue tracking system.
