    🆕 New Features

    🆕 New classification (knn-only) ref meta fields added (#1244)
    👀 See #1244 for details. When using the _classification underscore prop, the ref meta, i.e. the fields as part of each reference object contain new distances now. Note: Those distances will only be set if the object was affected by a kNN-classification. The new fields are overallCount, winningCount, losingCount, meanWinningDistance, meanLosingDistance, closestOverallDistance, closestWinningDistance and closestLosingDistance

    Standalone mode reaches feature parity with ES-based mode
    🚀 It is still possible to switch between modes. Standalone is not considered production ready yet, as some minor issues (see Milestone "Standalone") are not yet complete. ETA for a production-ready release - which removes all ES-features entirely - is v0.23.0 with ETA late December 2020.

    👀 For details see #1265, #1249, #1271, #1272, #1281, #1250, #1291, #1278, #1286, #1308

    🆕 New Deprecations

    • winningDistance and losingDistance in _classification ref meta deprecated
      👀 They have been replaced with meanLosingDistance and meanWinningDistance, see this deprecation notice for details.

    🆕 New Features

    • Introduce certainty in Get {} with explore set (#1258)
      🚀 Prior to this release the certainty (i.e. how close is a result to the search query) could only be set on Explore {}, but not on Get {} with an additional explore parameter set. This release introduces the _certainty underscore prop which introduces this ability

    🛠 Fixes

    • 👌 Improvements in moveAwayFrom (#1267)
      🚀 This releases fixes issues where setting the moveAwayFrom parameter in Explore and Get{} with explore would lead to bad results that were in some cases not related to the original search term anymore. This fix uses an improved formula (see #1267 for details) to calculate the new position after moving.
