Usually, when I set the GeoAnchor I would usually also expect a attrs->@geodist value in the result->matches array.

Since Sphinx 2.1.6 (most probably also earlier versions) - the geo search still works fine, but the result array does not contain any "geodist" information anymore.

I switched to SphinxQL and it works fine, so it seems not to be a problem with my config, but maybe this package lacking support for newer sphinx versions.

No stress though, seeing that nobody has filed this as a bug yet means I might be the only one using this (until now) useful php-extension.

Test script:
$sphinx = new SphinxClient;
$sphinx->setServer("", 9312);
$sphinx->setLimits(0, $num, $num);
$sphinx->setGeoAnchor("latitude", "longitude", deg2rad($lat), deg2rad($lng));
$sphinx->setFilterFloatRange("@geodist", (float) 0, (float) 2 * 1000);
$sphinx->setSortMode(SPH_SORT_EXTENDED, "@geodist ASC");

$result = $sphinx->query("", "poi");

I don't see any mention of geodist in libsphinxclient sources that come with 2.1.6-release, so I suppose libsphinxclient doesn't support it (yet?).
Since this library is the one used in the extension, there's not much we can do about it.
This issue probably has to be reported to the upstream first.
