Having fixed several issues and tasks since the previous milestone, it’s time to publish our third milestone towards Elasticsearch integration: Hibernate Search version 5.6.0.Alpha3 is now available!
Today we’re proud to announce the first Alpha release sporting experimental integration with Elasticsearch!
We also updated to use Apache Lucene 5.5 - the latest stable release of our favourite search engine - as of course we’re not abandoning our traditional users!
It’s my pleasure to announce the release of Hibernate Validator 5.2.4.Final!
This is a rather small bugfix release which addresses two nasty issues around one of the more advanced features of Bean Validation, redefined default group sequences.
The Hibernate team is proud to announce the release of ORM 5.1 which includes a number of new features and enhancements, including:
It’s my pleasure to announce the release of Hibernate Validator 5.2.3.Final!
Wait, didn’t we already do another Hibernate Validator release earlier this month? That’s right, indeed we pushed out the first Alpha of the 5.3 family a couple of days ago. And normally, that’d mean that there would be no further releases of earlier version families.
But in this case we decided to do an exception from the rule as we noticed that Hibernate Validator couldn’t be used with Java 9 (check out issue HV-1048 if you are interested in the details). As we don’t want to keep integrators and users of Hibernate Validator from testing their own software on Java 9, we decided to fix that issue on the current stable release line (in fact we strongly encourage you to test your applications on Java 9 to learn as early as possible about any potential changes you might need to make).
It’s my pleasure to announce the first release of Hibernate Validator 5.3!
The overarching idea for the 5.3 timeline is to prototype several features which may potentially be standardized in the Bean Validation 2.0 specification. For instance we’ll work on a solution for the long-standing request for sorting the constraints on single properties.
If you’d like to see any specific features addressed in that prototyping work (and eventually included in BV 2.0), then please get in touch and let us know which are the most important things you are missing from the spec. We’ve compiled a first list of issues we are considering for inclusion in BV 2.0. For sure we cannot address all of them, so it’ll greatly help if you tell us what would be most helpful to you.
The 7th bug-fix release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 has just been tagged and published.

5.5.2.Final is now available, our latest stable version sporting integration with Hibernate ORM 5 and Apache Lucene 5.3 - the state of the art.
Creating this version to be compatible with these two great OSS projects kept us busy for a good deal of this past year; I remember discussing this option with superstar OSS contributors Uwe Schindler (Apache Lucene developer) and Gustavo Nalle (Infinispan developer) at FOSDEM in January 2015! I am grateful to both for their guidance and suggestions, as driving progress forward is sometimes challenging when we strive to keep backwards compatibility as best as we can.
On top of that, our same small but amazing team as been working hard on Hibernate OGM 5, a bit of Hibernate Validator, incredible performance improvements on Hibernate ORM "classic" and is still tinkering on the internals of Hibernate Search to make an Elasticsearch backend an alternative to plain Lucene.
