The latest stable release of Hibernate Search, version 5.2.0.Final, is now available in Maven mirrors and as traditional downloads from Sourceforge.
The most visible new feature is that it now transparently integrates with Hibernate ORM's support for multi-tenancy. The Hibernate Search documentation on multi-tenancy describes how using this near feature from Hibernate ORM will affect the content of your indexes and how it is transparently applied to any Query operation.
The good news is that, while you might want to read the documentation to better understand how it works exactly, the documentation is short as it's all pretty much automatic: full-text queries are automatically filtered on the tenant identifier, providing the same semantics as you would with any other kind of query.
This version incorporates many more improvements which we won't list in detail here. As usual you might find some benefits in the areas of performance and efficiency, improved javadocs, improved OSGi support. The Query builder DSL is improving thanks to the ever increasing great feedback. Keep it coming, we'll keep improving!
- Java 7 or later
- Hibernate versions 4.3.x
- Apache Lucene versions 4.10.x
We've been working on a fully renewed Faceting support. Version 5.3.0.Beta1 will be available very soon as well, and include all of this work. Brace yourself though! While it will be API compatible, it will require some changes to your mapping: watch this space.
