Today is a good time for some maintenance releases of Hibernate Search.
We released all three branches currently in maintenance mode:
- Version 5.5.7.Final
Maintained as it’s included in WildFly, compatible with Hibernate ORM
5.1: change log.
- Version 5.6.2.Final
Latest stable version compatible with Hibernate ORM
5.1, including first experimental support for Elasticsearch: change log.
- Version 5.7.1.Final
Stable version compatible with Hibernate ORM >
5.2.3.Finaland later: change log.
The master branch is also very active! Expect a new Beta release of version 5.8 with support for Elasticsearch
5+ later this week.
We backported various small fixes which should be welcome but of low impact. The big deal is HSEARCH-2691, as you might fail to notice this problem until testing under load, which is quite inconvenient.
Big thanks to Andrej Golovnin, who spotted the problem and shared a patch; I suspect it wasn’t easy to find the problem.
Also thanks to Osamu Nagano, who pointed out the importance of this fix and suggested backporting it urgently.
All versions are available for download on Hibernate Search’s web site.
Ideally use a modern build tool to fetch it from Maven central; these are the coordinates:
<dependency> <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId> <artifactId>hibernate-search-orm</artifactId> <version>5.7.1.Final</version> </dependency>
To use the experimental Elasticsearch integration you’ll also need:
<dependency> <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId> <artifactId>hibernate-search-elasticsearch</artifactId> <version>5.7.1.Final</version> </dependency>
Downloads from Sourceforge are available as well.
