We just published a bugfix release for Hibernate Search: 5.11.8.Final.
This version mainly brings one bugfix: it ensures resources are correctly cleaned up when Hibernate Search fails to establish a connection to Elasticsearch on startup. Not doing so could cause the application to hang in some cases. Thanks to Valentin Aitken for his contribution.
For a full list of changes since the previous release, please see the release notes.
All details are available and up to date on the dedicated page on hibernate.org.
