21881 - Improve ResolvedConceptReferencesIterator performance by reducing client-server network traffic in distributed mode.
21882 - LexEVS 5.1 Value Domain Support
21976 - Improve LexEVS Loading Framework
21980 - Optimize Lucene code to improve search performance
21982 - Implement a server side sort to improve performance

Important Remaining Issues / Limitations

  • Value Domain (CTS 2 Value Set) support in the 5.1 release is not fully implemented and is offered as a capability that developers of LexEVS dependent applications and services can use to familiarize themselves with value domains in a non-production setting. Production use of Value Domain fuctionality should be delayed until the release of the 6.0 build of LexEVS.
  • LexBIGServiceConvenienceMethods in the 5.1 release are not all adapted for use in distributed mode and should not be attempted to be used distributed. These include getHierarchyOrphanedConcepts(), getHierarchyLevelNextCount(), getHierarchyLevelPrevCount(), addEntityLuceneIndexes(), removeEntityLuceneIndexes(), modifyEntityLuceneIndexes().
