Hibernate Search is a library that integrates Hibernate ORM with Apache Lucene or Elasticsearch by automatically indexing entities, enabling advanced search functionality: full-text, geospatial, aggregations and more. For more information, see Hibernate Search on hibernate.org.

While our focus has been on the exciting new improvements in Hibernate Search 4, since the release of the last stable release 3.4.0.Final we had much interesting feedback from the community, including bugreports and patches.

Since some contributors have asked for a bugfix release, here comes Hibernate Search 3.4.1.Final!

What's new

  • Some tricky indexing issues with @IndexedEmbedded entities in a @ManyToOne relation fixed
  • Faceting was a new feature, several bugs where fixed
  • 3.4 introduced dirty checking of collections: both a bug was solved and performance was improved even more

All details are tracked on JIRA.

A sad warning

As we now mention on the documentation too, Java 7 is not a recommended VM to use yet.

The usual links

As always distribution bundles are available from Sourceforge, or you can get it via Maven artifact. Questions can be posted on the forums, bugs can be discussed with us or posted to JIRA directly, possibly with unit tests.

Many thanks to Mathieu Perez, Nikita D, Kyrill Alyoshin, Elmer van Chastelet, Guillaume Smet and Samppa Saarela for their code analysis, tests and fixes.
