We just published three maintenance releases for Hibernate Search: 6.0.7.Final, 5.11.10.Final and 5.10.12.Final.
These releases mainly upgrade Hibernate Search to the latest compatible Hibernate ORM versions, add deprecations in the 5.x versions for features that are no longer present in 6.0, and fix a few bugs.
The Hibernate team is pleased to announce availability of version
5.6.0.Final of our flagship ORM library.
Compared to previous candidate releases, not much has changed:
a single bugfix HHH-13295 related to combining
@MapsId- this was not a regression
Upgraded ByteBuddy to the latest
Some more deprecation warnings, to better prepare you all for the amazing Hibernate ORM 6 - which is coming soon and you could already try out as Beta1 is now available.
Hibernate Reactive 1.0.0.CR10 is now available!
This release adds support for automatic schema validation and update
for MySQL, Db2 and MS SQL Server.
We’ve also changed the
openStateless methods for the creation of a new session, so you might see
some compilation errors after the upgrade.
A complete list of changes is available on the Hibernate Reactive issue tracker.
Thanks a lot!
The first Beta of Hibernate ORM 6.0 has just been released.
We had a few main focuses for this Beta:
The main branch of Hibernate ORM, which will soon be promoted as our 5.6 release, is looking good and stable;
we’re happy to announce tag
5.6.0.CR1 was released today and should already be available from your favourite Maven mirrors.
Compared to previous
5.6.0.Beta2, you should see no differences:
The GraalVM support module was upgraded to compile with GraalVM
JMX integration is now marked deprecated, in preparation for Hibernate ORM 6
JACC integration was also marked deprecated, for the same reason
SchemaMigrator/SchemaValidator are undergoing some minor refactoring, to expose functionality to Hibernate Reactive
Today, we published a new maintenance release of Hibernate ORM 5.3: 5.3.23.Final.
5.6.0.Beta2 was released today.
Today OpenJDK 17 was released, and we’re very excited about it! Congratulations to Mark Reinhold and all fantastic OpenJDK contributors for the very promising milestone.
If you are using any Hibernate libraries in your project, we made sure that this is no excuse holding you back from upgrading: all our maintained branches have been regularly tested with early releases of OpenJDK 17, any patches we needed to apply have long been included in maintenance releases.
By now our projects are already preparing for OpenJDK 18 - technically for our QA, Java 17 is old news: I hope that’s reassuring for you all.
We just published Hibernate Search 6.1.0.Alpha1, an alpha release of the next minor version of Hibernate Search.
The main feature of this new version is a new concept of "coordination" to perform automatic indexing in an asynchronous, distributed way. It allows for a new architecture where several risks of out-of-sync indexes are eliminated, and the overhead of automatic indexing on application threads is reduced significantly.
Beyond that, 6.1.0.Alpha1 also includes upgrades to newer versions of Hibernate ORM, Lucene, and Elasticsearch, OpenSearch compatibility, search DSL improvements, conditional mass indexing and more.
We just released Hibernate ORM
5.6.x series will be rather light on features as all stronger improvements are now reserved for versions
6+, but we’re starting a cleanup so to help you get prepared with the migration to six.
This is also a strategy to allow us to be more conservative with the patches we apply to
5.5 series, which we will maintain for longer like we do already with
5.4 but somewhat delaying backports of fixes to these branches, to give us all that extra level of confidence.
