Hibernate Validator 6 is going to be the Reference Implementation of Bean Validation 2.0.
This Beta1 release is coordinated with the 2.0.0.Beta1 release (Public Review Draft) of the Bean Validation specification.
It is also a playground used to validate future enhancements of the Bean Validation specification so feedback on the subjects presented here is very welcome!
Note that Hibernate Validator 6 requires JDK 8 or above.
I am proud to announce the release of Hibernate Validator 5.4.0.CR1. This is a candidate release, please take the time to test it and report any issues you might find so that we can build the best possible 5.4.0.Final.
So, today is my birthday which is in no way related to this blog post but is definitely worth knowing! This special day for me seems to be a good occasion to announce the second maintenance release of Hibernate Validator 5.3.
