We are excited to announce the release of 5.5.0.Alpha1.
Hibernate ORM 5.5.0.Alpha1 adds new artifacts with the name suffix "-jakarta" like hibernate-core-jakarta. These artifacts are currently work in progress, but will eventually provide support for Jakarta JPA 3.0.
The bytecode enhancement configuration was adapted to turn on enhancement-as-proxy by default and remove the switch for configuring this.
In addition, the release introduces a few minor improvements as well as bug fixes. See below for the complete list of changes.
Specials thanks to Karel Maesen for implementing Spatial support for CockroachDB and PostgisPG10Dialect.
All details are available and up to date on the dedicated page on hibernate.org.
