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.

Hibernate Search 5.5.6.Final is here!

This is a maintenance release and contains exclusively bugfixes.

What’s new?

  • HSEARCH-2494: @TikaBridge will now work correctly on properties of type byte[].

  • HSEARCH-2535: @Facet with string encoding will now work properly on multi-valued properties (such as String[] or List<String>).

  • HSEARCH-2486: @ContainedIn in a superclass will now be taken into account even if the concrete class does not carry any Hibernate Search annotation.

  • HSEARCH-2479: building phrase queries with the Hibernate Search DSL used to trigger an IllegalArgumentException in some specific cases; this has been fixed.

  • …​ and more: the full change log can be found on our JIRA instance.

Thanks to Julien Bénichou, Andrew Robie and Timo Tretter for reporting issues, and even fixing one!
