We just released the final version of Hibernate ORM 5.4.0.
It is designed to be a drop in replacement for ORM 5.3.x.
Apart from some changes to entity graphs to make them more user friendly, it’s all about bugfixes and polishing.
We fixed a couple of bugs and regressions and improved the documentation.
All details are available and up to date on the dedicated page on hibernate.org.
We will release regular maintenance releases thereafter but the main focus of development is now Hibernate ORM 6.
