I am happy keep the Hibernate Search 5 release train rolling by announcing Hibernate Search
5.0.0.Beta2. Download it from the JBoss Maven Repository
using the GAV org.hibernate:hibernate-search:5.0.0.Beta2 or from SourceForge. The full change log is available via the
JIRA release notes.
We are getting closer to a final release and this version is mainly about improving general performance and reducing the amount of round trips to the datastore. We also added optimistic locking support for datastores which provide atomic find-and-update operations.
After some time in the making, we are happy to announce the first Hibernate Validator release of
the 5.2 series - 5.2.0.Alpha1.
This release focuses mainly on Java 8 support, but we will get to this in a bit.
