We just released a CR2 of the Bean Validation 2.0 release train (e.g. the specification, the API and the TCK) and, as usual, we release a compatible version of Hibernate Validator shortly after: here comes Hibernate Validator 6.0.0.CR2.
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.
