Today, we published a new maintenance release of Hibernate ORM 5.4: 5.4.28.Final.

What’s new

This release introduces:

  • Geolatte-geom support for `SpatialPrediates`in Hibernate Spatial (HHH-13975)

  • a new configuration setting hibernate.hbm2ddl.default_constraint_mode to control the foreign key creation during database schema generation (HHH-14253).

In addition, the release introduces a few minor improvements as well as bug fixes. See below for the complete list of changes.

But also, there was a severe regression in 5.4.27.Final : HHH-14424.

Since the amount of other improvements we had in the 5.4 branch was rather high, we also released a version 5.4.27.SP1 which includes exclusively the fix for this severe regression; this is meant to help people who need the urgent fix but would rather not yet upgrade to 5.4.28.


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