With Elasticsearch support coming as a technological preview in Hibernate Search 5.6, you would think we’re leaving out other features. Well, think again! Enters the Sort DSL, which will work with Elasticsearch of course, but also with the good ol' Lucene backend.
The point here is to provide an API to build sort descriptions easily, without knowing everything about Hibernate Search features added on top of Lucene, such as DistanceSortField. And while we’re at it, we’re making it a modern, fluid API.
I’m proud to announce our team is a bit larger nowadays, and more contributors are volunteering too, so we managed to increase the development pace. Today we release version 5.6.0.Beta3, 5.7.0.Alpha1 and 5.5.5.Final.

Hibernate comes with a great variety of features that can help you tune the data access layer.
