Hibernate Validator 4.3.0.CR1 has just arrived. This release is hopefully the last stepping stone to 4.3.0.Final. As mentioned before we want to get 4.3
out as fast as possible, so that we can start working on Hibernate Validator 5 (aligning with
Bean Validation 1.1).
After gradually collecting more and more experience with Gradle via the Hibernate Core build, I decided prepare a final showdown. As a reminder, Hibernate ORM switched as of version 4 from Maven to Gradle for a variety of reasons. Taking these reasons on board, I tried to compare Maven vs Gradle incorporating some of the lessons learned. I presented the results at Jfokus 2012. If you are interested here are the slides.
It has gone some time since I announced the last release of the Hibernate JPA Metamodel Generator. It is time to announce the release of version 1.2.0.CR1. Just as a reminder, JPA Metamodel Generator is an annotation processor which generates the canonical metamodel classes needed for using the strongly typed JPA 2 Criteria queries.
Moving to steadily towards a Hibernate Search 4 we just released Hibernate Search 4.0.0.CR2.
In total we managedto address 32 issues. If you are interested in the details have a look at the
Jira release notes.
Moving from Alpha2 to Beta1, I am happy to announce the release of Hibernate Search 4.0.0.Beta1. For a full list of changes refer to the Jira release notes. Let's look at some of the changes in detail though.
