A new updated version of the Hibernate Tools (http://tools.hibernate.org) project have been made available.
The tools are for both Eclipse and ANT. In this release the documentation for both ANT and Eclipse have been extensively updated and merged into a reference documentation, see http://www.hibernate.org/hib_docs/tools/reference/en/html_single/
See screenshots and other noteworthy news at http://www.hibernate.org/hib_docs/tools/eclipse/newandnoteworthy/hibernate-eclipse-news-3.1.0.beta4.html for more information.
As always feedback, ideas, contributions, patches, bug-reports are more than welcome by the usual means at http://forum.hibernate.org and JIRA.
Currently we are discussing wether FreeMarker should replace the current
Velocity template engine used in the tools or if something can be done to make the Velocity templates more
userfriendly. Come and join at http://forum.hibernate.org/viewtopic.php?t=954602
