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.
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.
It has been a long time since an Hibernate Search release but we have not been lazy. We are pleased to announce 3.1.0 Beta1 with tons of new features and enhancements.
This release uses Lucene 2.3.x and works with Hibernate Core 3.3, Hibernate Annotations 3.4 and Hibernate EntityManager 3.4.
Here is a list of some of the major new features and enhancements:
