Hibernate ORM 4.2.9.Final was released this evening with almost 50 fixes! Please see the full changelog for more information: https://hibernate.atlassian.net/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10031&version=15350.
This should be considered the final 4.2.x release. There's a chance 4.2.10 will be necessary to coincide with upcoming EAP/Wildfly releases. Regardless, 4.3.x is the new
stable version while we shift focus towards ORM 5.
