Happy now to announce a successful release of Hibernate ORM 5.5.3.Final! It is already available for download from your favourite Maven Central mirror.

DDL scripts generation

We have introduced the hibernate.hbm2ddl.schema-generation.script.append configuration property, it allows specifying if the schema commands should be appended to the end of the file rather than overwriting the file.

Values are true (default value) for appending schema commands to the end of the file, false for overwriting the file (see HHH-11817).


The release contains some more small optimisations, this time targeting collection of Statistics of usage of the Query Cache.


Some other defects have been fixed, for a full list see the Release Notes.
