Originally started as a Google Summer of Code project by Mincong Huang,
Hibernate Search 5.9 will feature integration with JSR 352, "Batch Applications for the Java Platform".
This integration provides a new implementation of mass indexing (indexing a high volume of entities)
as a JSR 352 job.
We just published 5.9.0.Beta1, the first beta release for the 5.9 branch.
This release brings several bug fixes, but most importantly a new mass indexer
based on the JSR 352 specification, "Batch Applications for the Java Platform"!
We just published three bugfix releases of Hibernate Search: 5.6.4.Final, 5.7.3.Final and 5.8.2.Final.
Those releases include in particular an upgrade of the Lucene dependency to 5.5.5,
which fixes CVE-2017-12629.
This vulnerability should only affect you if you use org.apache.lucene.queryparser.xml.CoreParser
and feed it with input from untrusted sources: this class is not used by Hibernate Search itself.
However, the upgrade is recommended even if you don’t use this class.
As you can see, the Hibernate websites
(hibernate.org and in.relation.to)
just got a facelift!
We made them prettier than ever, but we also added more information
and made sure that you will find what you want even more easily than before.
