Shortly after releasing 4.2.7.Final, a regression was found (caused in 4.2.6.Final) that may affect some usages of Date, Calendar-as-a-Date, and JDBC Dates. See https://hibernate.atlassian.net/browse/HHH-8617 for more information. So, we decided to release 4.2.7.SP1 to correct it.
We have been very quiet on the announcement front for Hibernate OGM, but
don't be fooled.
Davide and Gunnar have been very busy bees and did bring significant
for features that you will see in the next few months.
Emmanuel is headed to JavaOne, where you can see his hands-on presentations: live on stage coding showing the latest features of Hibernate Search and Bean Validation.
It's a unique experience to see how easy it is to get started with these technologies, and also what powerful features they can provide you in just one hour coding.
