Hi,
The SignedApplet.jar file seems to be missing in the gs2.61
installation. Can I download it from somewhere or do I need to do anything
else to run GLI applet from the browser?
Also, lucene search doesn't seem to be working properly. I have included
a text file in my collection and the text of this file disappears on
building. What will I need to do get this working? Lucene bundled with
v2.6 also threw similar errors. Has this bug been fixed in this version?

Regards,
Chaitra
