We just released Hibernate Validator 6.0.13.Final which comes with very few changes.

It will be the version included in WildFly 14.

This is a recommended upgrade for everyone using Hibernate Validator and it is a drop-in replacement for 6.0.12.Final.

What’s new

We fixed two minor issues:

  • HV-1650 - French translations are badly encoded - this one was reported and fixed by Audrey Romanet

  • HV-1652 - Fix a few theoretical null pointer dereference issues

Getting 6.0.13.Final

To get the release with Maven, Gradle etc. use the following GAV coordinates:

  • org.hibernate.validator:hibernate-validator:6.0.13.Final

  • org.hibernate.validator:hibernate-validator-cdi:6.0.13.Final

  • org.hibernate.validator:hibernate-validator-annotation-processor:6.0.13.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 13 and WildFly 14 Beta1. You can read about how to apply such patches here.

What’s next?

Our efforts are now directed towards the new 6.1, which will introduce some structuring changes such as allowing getters with non standard names (name() instead of getName() for instance) and JSON validation support.
