We are making good progress on our next major release which focuses on Elasticsearch integration
but we don’t forget our beloved users of Hibernate Search 5.5.x and here is a new stable release to prove it!
This bugfix release is entirely based on user feedback so keep it coming!
Hibernate Search version 5.5.4.Final is available now and fixes the following issues:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last months and years, you’ve probably heard about the efforts for adding a module system to the Java platform, code-named "Project Jigsaw".
Defining a module system and modularizing a huge system like the JDK is by no means a trivial task, so it’s not by surprise that the advent of Jigsaw has been delayed several times.
But I think by now it’s a rather safe bet to expect Jigsaw to be released as part of JDK 9 eventually (the exact release date remains to be defined), especially since it became part of the early access builds a while ago.
This means that if you are an author of a library or framework, you should grab the latest JDK preview build and make sure your lib can be used a) on Java 9 and b) within modularized applications using Jigsaw.
