As suggested last week, today we released Hibernate Search version 5.3.0.Final.
Compared to the previous candidate release, the only changes are some minor clarifications in the documentation.
<dependency> <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId> <artifactId>hibernate-search-orm</artifactId> <version>5.3.0.Final</version> </dependency>
The new great faceting integration comes at a small migration cost: remember you now need to use the new @Facet annotation as explained in the the example of the previous post.
Barring some maintenance needs on this branch 5.3, we have no plans of other Hibernate Search releases to target Hibernate ORM 4.3.x. The focus is now on Hibernate 5 compatibility.
