We are happy to announce version 2.4.0 of EXT:tika. This is the release for TYPO3 CMS LTS 8.

New in this Release

Support Apache Tika 1.16

Since there as a change in the tika response in version 1.16 we adapted the detection, to check if the tika server is running.

Fix Solr Cell status check

As the extract handler is configured for lazy startups, it is possible that it's not loaded while testing. This commit improves the status check by performing a test extraction, instead of checking the plugin list.

Corrected several typos

Some typos in the code and documentation have been fixed.

Improved documentation

A paragraph with the configuration of the tika app was added that describes how to exlude mime types.

Adjusted report to only require java for the app mode

When you configure tika in server mode, it is not required to have java installed since it can also run on another node. Therefore the report checks have been changed to trigger an error when java is not installed when the app is used and only a warning, when the tika server mode is used.
