The 5th bug-fix release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 has just been tagged and published. This release and the upcoming 5.0.6 release have been done on an accelerated timebox of 2 weeks (from the normal 4 weeks for bugfix releases) due to US holidays.

The fourth bug-fix release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 has just been tagged and published.
There are 52 issues resolved in this release. 20 of those came out of the recent Jira cleanup. Initially that initiative pulled in roughly 750 issues.
