The fourth bug-fix release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 has just been tagged and published.
There are 52 issues resolved in this release. 20 of those came out of the recent Jira cleanup. Initially that initiative pulled in roughly 750 issues. To date, 66 of those have been resolved - fixed or verified as out-of-date, unable-to-reproduce, etc. An additional 14 have been more propoerly reclassified as feature or enhancement requests rather than bugs. The really cool part is the amount of community help we have gotten in making that happen! Thanks to everyone responding, verifying and even fixing alot of these bugs!
The complete list of changes can be found here. People without a Hibernate Jira account will not be able to access the previous link and can access the changelog in GitHub; the issue I reported with Atlassian has been resolved and is ready for deployment into our hosted environment, I just do not know when that will happen.
Today I have released Hibernate ORM 5.0 (5.0.0.Final). This has been a long time coming and is the result
of the efforts of many folks. Thanks to everyone who helped us get here with fixes, bug reports, suggestions,
input and encouragement!
A lot of development has gone into 5.0. Here are the big points:
Today I released a fourth candidate release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 (5.0.0.CR4). The purpose was entirely to change the defaults
for some settings. This allowed some additional fixes and additional documentation work to make it in.
Yesterday I released the third candidate release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 (5.0.0.CR3). We felt another CR was warranted
because we had some minor integration (SPI) work that we needed to make in to Final, but too much development had happened since
the second CR to be considered risk free to just include everything into Final. At any rate CR3 got lots of great TLC :) The
complete set of changes can be seen in the Jira changelog. The
main changes include:
The second candidate release for Hibernate ORM 5.0. CR2 was required because of a bug in how class-loading
worked in certain managed JPA environments. The details can be found in HHH-9887. The main changes
since CR1 include:
