Originally started as a Google Summer of Code project by Mincong Huang,
Hibernate Search 5.9 will feature integration with JSR 352, "Batch Applications for the Java Platform".
This integration provides a new implementation of mass indexing (indexing a high volume of entities)
as a JSR 352 job.
We just published 5.9.0.Beta1, the first beta release for the 5.9 branch.
This release brings several bug fixes, but most importantly a new mass indexer
based on the JSR 352 specification, "Batch Applications for the Java Platform"!
We just published three bugfix releases of Hibernate Search: 5.6.4.Final, 5.7.3.Final and 5.8.2.Final.
Those releases include in particular an upgrade of the Lucene dependency to 5.5.5,
which fixes CVE-2017-12629.
This vulnerability should only affect you if you use org.apache.lucene.queryparser.xml.CoreParser
and feed it with input from untrusted sources: this class is not used by Hibernate Search itself.
However, the upgrade is recommended even if you don’t use this class.
