It has been a while since the first alpha release of Validator 5.1, but as the saying goes: Haste makes waste :-)
There is a lot going on in the Hibernate universe and over the last few months we have been
especially busy with projects like Search and OGM.
Not to speak of the new Hibernate website. Sigh, if we just had more contributors lending a
hand (hint, hint).
Guillaume pointed out recently on the hibernate-dev mailing list that is has been a very long time since the last release of Hibernate JPA Metamodel Generator release and that it is time to do another one. And we listened. We just released 1.3.0.Final. As usual, you can get the artefacts from the JBoss Maven repo or from SourceForge.
It has been quite some time since I have done my last Hibernate Search release announcement, so I am especially happy to get the 4.4 release train rolling. Hibernate Search 4.4.0.Alpha1 is now out and ready for download, either from the JBoss Maven Repository under the GAV org.hibernate:hibernate-search:4.4.0.Alpha1 or via SourceForge. The release contains fixes for 16 issues which you can closer inspect in the Jira release notes.
Today we are happy to announce the 5.0.1.Final release of Hibernate Validator. In case you are wondering what happened with 5.0.0.Final - it has not gone missing. In fact it was released on the 11th of April.
Inspired by these questions on the Search forum and stackoverflow I decided
to blog about different solutions for the problem using only the tools available in Search right now (4.1.1.Final). But let's start with the problem.
Good news for all of you waiting for an early version of Hibernate Validator 5 in order to experiment with the new Bean Validation 1.1 (JSR 349) features. Hibernate Validator 5.0.0.Alpha1 is now available for download in the JBoss Maven Repository under the GAV org.hibernate:hibernate-validator:5.0.0.Alpha1 or via SourceForge.
