I've been working on a new version of CLucene with Alan Wright. This new version is called Lucene++, is compatible with Java Lucene 3.0.3 and is heavily built with boost (full use of shared_ptr, and a lot of other areas), and thus avoids many of the problems that users have with memory handling and bugs relating to threading, etc. For a number of reasons, I've decided not to try and merge the two projects.

Lucene++ Python Bindings

I've also been working on python bindings for Lucene++. It's pretty extensive but not complete yet.

After installing, have a look at the samples and test folder to see how to create your first python-lucene++ app. PyLucene users should find python-lucene++ very familiar, and there are very few changes necessary.
