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.
There has been a lot of release activity on the Hibernate front lately and it is my pleasure to announce that Hibernate Validator just joined the party with the release of Hibernate Validator 5.3.0.Final.
We are making good progress working on Bean Validation 2.0 and we decided to move the target version for BV 2.0 to Hibernate Validator 6 (see more at the end of this post!).
We did not want to leave 5.3 half backed so we are preparing a 5.3 release with bugfixes, additional translations… and a few new features. This Candidate Release 1 is the first step towards this process. Expect a quick 5.3.0.Final release after that so please test this version as thoroughly as possible and report any bugs you may find in it!
