The Hibernate team is pleased to announce availability of version 5.6.0.Final of our flagship ORM library.

Compared to previous candidate releases, not much has changed:

Some maintenance as well

We have also released Hibernate ORM v. 5.5.8.Final, which includes a more substantial amount of bugfixes (but which had already been incorporated in 5.6).

Going forward we’ll be more conservative with backporting fixes to the 5.5 branch, but at this point the differences between 5.5 and 5.6 are fairly minimal, as we focus on the future of 6.0.
