We just released Hibernate Validator 6.0.16.Final which includes several improvements and bugfixes.
This is a recommended upgrade for everyone using Hibernate Validator and it is a drop-in replacement for 6.0.15.Final.
We fixed a performance regression compared to 5.x when validating unconstrained beans.
Note that Hibernate Validator 6.x is significantly faster than 5.x and it keeps improving.

The complete list of fixed issues can be found on our JIRA.
To get the release with Maven, Gradle etc. use the following GAV coordinates:
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 16 and WildFly 15. You can read about how to apply such patches here.
