Today, we released a new maintenance release of Hibernate ORM 5.3.

It will be the version included in WildFly 14.

What’s new

Bug fixes

This release mostly contains bugfixes:

  • HHH-12875 and HHH-12882 - Various fixes regarding @Where support

  • HHH-12871 - Metamodel contains managed types related to dynamic-map entities that have been excluded

  • HHH-12905 - Passing null as parameter is not allowed even when enablePassingNulls() has been called

  • HHH-12906 - Statistics.getCollectionRoleNames() reports incorrect value

  • HHH-12907 - Avoid garbage collection pressure when creating proxies with ByteBuddy

Naive limit handler for Sybase

We implemented a naive limit handler for Sybase: it will only be triggered for traditional SELECT and SELECT DISTINCT queries and will add a TOP clause to these queries.

While simple, it should be useful in a lot of common scenarios.

Dependency upgrade

You should update your ByteBuddy dependency to 1.8.17 if you define it manually.
