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.

We released Hibernate Search 5.1.1.Final, a micro update for version 5.1: our latest best release ever which we described early this month.

Special thanks to:

Török László for fixing a subtle bug in NullEncodingTwoWayFieldBridge

Russell Dickenson for fixing many typos in the documentation

Thach Hoang for improving javadoc of the @Spatial annotation

Besides the above fixes, a good reason to publish this release already was HSEARCH-1824. This problem won't affect you as Hibernate user but was a blocker to update the Infinispan Query engine to Hibernate Search 5.1.x.

Remember you can annotate any Java pojo - even not Hibernate entities - and have them indexed and queried as usual when you store them in Infinispan.

Get updated!
