Today, we published a new maintenance release of Hibernate ORM 5.4: 5.4.30.Final.

Spatial support for CockroachDB

This release introduces a CockroachDB202SpatialDialect in the hibernate-spatial module, that supports the spatial features available in CockroachDB v20.2 and later.

Just as CockroachDB strives for (PostgreSQL compatibility), the spatial data support is based on (PostGIS). The dialect provides similar functionality as the spatial dialects based on PostgreSQL.

This release also introduces:

  • PostgisPG10Dialect in the hibernate-spatial module, a PostGIS dialect for PostgreSQL 10 (HHH-14037).

  • Support orphan-removal for one-to-one inside components (HHH-4815)

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


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

Thank you

Specials thanks to Karel Maesen for implementing Spatial support for CockroachDB and PostgisPG10Dialect.
