We are excited to announce the release of Hibernate ORM 6.0 Alpha5.
The main design goal for 6.0 is to improve even more Hibernate’s through-put performance. High-load performance
testing showed that Hibernate’s approach of reading values from ResultSet by name to be its most limiting factor in
scaling through-put. At its most basic, 6.0 is all about changing from its old strategy of read-by-name to
read-by-position. But that simple goal has a lot of ramifications.
We have come really far, but still it is an Alpha, so there is still plenty more to do.
