Another week, another Hibernate Validator release. You might ask why we release a new maintenance version of the 6.0 branch so soon: it is mostly to provide a patch for WildFly 11 Final but it is also packed with nice enhancements!

This is a recommended upgrade for everyone using Hibernate Validator 6.0.x and it is a drop-in replacement of 6.0.3.Final.

What’s new

A patch for WildFly 11 Final

It has been a while since we provide patches for WildFly so that you can easily use the latest versions of Hibernate Validator on WildFly.

With the release of WildFly 11 Final, we thought it would be nice to provide WildFly users with a patch as soon as possible.

You can get the patch from Maven Central here (wait for the synchronization) and you can learn about how to apply such patches there.

Note that for the time being, we still provide a patch for WildFly 10.1.

Performance improvements

We studied a couple of issues reported by our users and we made a few more performance improvements. Validation will be faster now in many cases.

I’m working on a specific blog post with some nice benchmark results. Stay tuned.

Full changelog

The complete list of fixed issues can be found on our JIRA.

Getting 6.0.4.Final

To get the release with Maven, Gradle etc. use the GAV coordinates org.hibernate.validator:{hibernate-validator|hibernate-validator-cdi|hibernate-validator-annotation-processor}:6.0.4.Final. Note that the group id has changed from org.hibernate (Hibernate Validator 5 and earlier) to org.hibernate.validator (from Hibernate Validator 6 onwards).

Alternatively, a distribution bundle containing all the bits is provided on SourceForge (TAR.GZ, ZIP).

If you want to benefit from the new features of this version on WildFly, we also provide WildFly patches for WildFly 10.1 and WildFly 11.0 (wait for the synchronization to Maven Central). You can read about how to apply such patches here.

What’s next?

We will continue to release maintenance releases to fix quickly the issues reported by our users.

We updated our roadmap with the ideas we have for the future. If you want to join us, don’t hesitate to pick a task and come discuss it with us.
