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.
