The main branch of Hibernate ORM, which will soon be promoted as our 5.6 release, is looking good and stable; we’re happy to announce tag 5.6.0.CR1 was released today and should already be available from your favourite Maven mirrors.

Compared to previous 5.6.0.Beta2, you should see no differences:

  • The GraalVM support module was upgraded to compile with GraalVM 21.2.0.

  • JMX integration is now marked deprecated, in preparation for Hibernate ORM 6

  • JACC integration was also marked deprecated, for the same reason

  • SchemaMigrator/SchemaValidator are undergoing some minor refactoring, to expose functionality to Hibernate Reactive
