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.
