We are continuing our quest for Hibernate Search 4.0.
No breaking news for this release, we are quietly moving to the candidate release phase.
As Sanne, said the big news is that there are no big news ;)
After quite a pleasant time off the road, it looks like break time is over for me. I'm quite happy and terrified at the same time as it allows me to meet and chat with you but also means I set expectations and have less time to deliver on the projects.
Continuing on the Hibernate Search 4 rails, we have just released Hibernate Search 4.0.0 Alpha2. It's the usual lot of bug fixes but also contains some interesting new features
made possible by the refactoring started in the 4 series.
This september in Paris, we are lucky to host both the OpenWorldForum and Open Source Developer Conference. And they had the common sense to host them at the same time in the same place. It's September 22th-24th in Paris. I believe it's free but requires registration.
This is a pretty exciting moment, the first public alpha release of a brand new project: Hibernate OGM. Hibernate OGM stands for Object Grid Mapping and its goal is to offer a full-fledged JPA engine storing data into NoSQL stores. This is a rather long blog entry so I've split it into distinct sections from goals to technical detail to future.
The Hibernate team is pleased to announce Hibernate Search 3.4 which comes with couple of new features most notably faceting: we are continuing the trend of 3.3 where the focus was on simplifying queries). But the bulk of the work has been around performance optimization, you should see the benefits in your applications especially when the domain model is getting complex.
