Member of the Hibernate team and project lead of Hibernate Validator as well as Bean Validation expert group member. Jack of all trades, interested in everything Java and beyond.
The dust is settling around JSR-303 and we are happy to release Hibernate Validator 4.0.0.CR1. With this release we will be going into feature freeze, especially since we aligned it with JBoss AS 5.2 and Glassfish for integration.
With work on version 3.2 of Hibernate Search well underway and a range of very interesting features in the pipeline (eg programmatic configuration API, bulk indexing and dynamic boosting), we decided to provide some of the bug fixes also for the 3.1 version of Hibernate Search. Hence here is Hibernate Search 3.1.1 GA. On top of several bug fixes which are listed in the release notes we also upgraded Lucene from 2.4 to 2.4.1.
The first beta version of Hibernate Validator - 4.0.0 Beta1 - is now available. This version is based on JSR 303 Specification 1.0.CR2.
Hibernate Validator version 4.0.0 Alpha3 is of now available. This implementation is based on JSR 303 Specification 1.0.CR1. The distribution packages contain everything you need to get started.
Following the Roadmap version 4.0.0 Alpha2 of Hibernate Validator is now available. This implementation is based on JSR 303 Specification 1.0.Beta4. The distribution contains everything you need to get started. If not let us know what you are missing.
Just came back from Nürnberg where I was invited to present Hibernate Search at the Herbstcampus conference. It was the first year for this conference with the hope of making it an established yearly event. Given that already in the first year over 200 people showed up Herbstcampus might be on the right track.
Last month we released GA versions of Hibernate Annotations and EntityManager, but only a CR for Validator. This has changed of today with the release of Validator 3.1.0.GA.
Just waiting for my flight back to Sweden after being invited to present Hibernate Search at the monthly JBUG Munich meeting. I was pleasantly suprised that despite school holidays a respectable crowd showed up for the meeting. The feedback was throughout positiv and hopefully there are now a few new Search convertees spreading the word in Munich.
Without much ado I am happy to announce the following releases:
