Hibernate 3.3.0.GA has been released. A big thanks to everyone who helped us get here.
A few changes from 3.2 worth noting:
- Migration to a Maven-based build
- Splitting of the project into modular jars (here I mean what Maven calls modules). This allows users to easily see and minimize dependencies.
- Redesigned second-level caching SPI
- Integration with JBossCache 2.x as a second level cache provider.
I'll be following up with more detailed blogs about some of the specific points.
You can download the full distribution from SourceForge or make use of the Maven artifacts from the JBoss Maven repository.
