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.

What’s new

Bugfixes and documentation improvements

We fixed a couple of bugs and regressions and improved the documentation.

You can find the full list of changes in this version here (or, for people without a Hibernate Jira account, here).
