I have a Q around Elasticsearch vNext. We use payload feature of Elasticsearch for enabling our scenario and want to know if we have any improvement planned in this area. We are currently in ES 1.7 and planning to move to ES 2.4 soon.
What do you mean by payload feature?
We use this https://lucene.apache.org/core/4_3_0/core/org/apache/lucene/analysis/tokenattributes/PayloadAttribute.html to store extra information for each term (token) along with offset and position.
