Hibernate 3.6.0.CR2 has mainly minor bug fixes with several improvements.
The improvements are:
- HHH-5560 Envers has added support for ValidityAuditStrategy - an alternative way to write history entries. The new strategy offers increased query performance, at the cost of additional operations during audit writing. For details see the blogs here and here.
- Several improvements to annotations support for discriminators, column-level read/write expressions, and timestamp versions.
Some fixes of particular interest are:
- HHH-892 would cause an exception when an HQL query has an ORDER BY clause that refers to a result variable (i.e., select expression alias).

The release bundles have been uploaded to SourceForge.
