We might support solr or xapian for search or both, but we don't have schedule for this yet.

Thanks, I'm planning to hire some developer who can help to integrate with solr with metadata search, I have large article/blog site with 200 articles a month, and would like to integrate both Q&A community with wordpress article site so based on labels and other metadata, the both system can display similar content.

Perhaps you could consider hiring us. For askbot we develop only open source software. We give a better rate too for the open source work. Please feel free to contact me at

The documentation now says Solr is supported.
