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.
Guillaume pointed out recently on the hibernate-dev mailing list that is has been a very long time since the last release of Hibernate JPA Metamodel Generator release and that it is time to do another one. And we listened. We just released 1.3.0.Final. As usual, you can get the artefacts from the JBoss Maven repo or from SourceForge.
It's my pleasure to announce the first alpha release of Hibernate Validator 5.1. This release brings you several new features based on top of the Bean Validation 1.1 APIs, substantial performance improvements as well as some bug fixes.
