Read those release notes...

It's easy to get distracted by all the shiny big features that get deployed in new releases of Sitecore, but every so often a little gem slips past almost without comment. Except in the release notes...

Those assumptions? You should validate them...

The one thing that is true of every aspect of IT is that it is always changing. And that change means that things you were confident of in the past may no longer hold true.

I was reminded of this while sitting in the pub with some developers recently, talking about querying for items by path in Sitecore. The debate about the best way to do this raged, but a common thread of the debate was that it is often said that the fastest way to find a set of items you needed is via a ContentSearch index. That assumptions has its roots in the time when most sites were using Lucene to run queries, and for queries with more complex matching rules. But does that hold true here?
