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.
We decided to do another release of the 5.1 series to fix some bugs to be included in an upcoming version of WildFly. This may be the last release of the 5.1 series, so we recommend that you migrate to 5.2 for future bugfixes.
Just a quick heads-up to French-speaking developers:
I will be presenting the Elasticsearch integration in Hibernate Search at the Strasbourg Java User Group (ElsassJUG) meetup,
at 7 PM on Wednesday 26th of April.
I will briefly introduce full-text search (why and how it’s done),
then present how to use Hibernate Search to keep Lucene indexes in sync with your Hibernate ORM entities,
and I will show you how easy it is to target Elasticsearch instead of local Lucene indexes since Hibernate Search 5.6.0.

please refer to the Meetup page.
