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:
a single bugfix HHH-13295 related to combining
@MapsId- this was not a regression
Upgraded ByteBuddy to the latest
Some more deprecation warnings, to better prepare you all for the amazing Hibernate ORM 6 - which is coming soon and you could already try out as Beta1 is now available.
The main branch of Hibernate ORM, which will soon be promoted as our 5.6 release, is looking good and stable;
we’re happy to announce tag
5.6.0.CR1 was released today and should already be available from your favourite Maven mirrors.
Compared to previous
5.6.0.Beta2, you should see no differences:
The GraalVM support module was upgraded to compile with GraalVM
JMX integration is now marked deprecated, in preparation for Hibernate ORM 6
JACC integration was also marked deprecated, for the same reason
SchemaMigrator/SchemaValidator are undergoing some minor refactoring, to expose functionality to Hibernate Reactive
5.6.0.Beta2 was released today.
Today OpenJDK 17 was released, and we’re very excited about it! Congratulations to Mark Reinhold and all fantastic OpenJDK contributors for the very promising milestone.
If you are using any Hibernate libraries in your project, we made sure that this is no excuse holding you back from upgrading: all our maintained branches have been regularly tested with early releases of OpenJDK 17, any patches we needed to apply have long been included in maintenance releases.
By now our projects are already preparing for OpenJDK 18 - technically for our QA, Java 17 is old news: I hope that’s reassuring for you all.
We just released Hibernate ORM
5.6.x series will be rather light on features as all stronger improvements are now reserved for versions
6+, but we’re starting a cleanup so to help you get prepared with the migration to six.
This is also a strategy to allow us to be more conservative with the patches we apply to
5.5 series, which we will maintain for longer like we do already with
5.4 but somewhat delaying backports of fixes to these branches, to give us all that extra level of confidence.
5.5.6.Final is now available, with a single bugfix to
Many thanks to Falko Modler for reporting the issue!
5.5.5.Final was released today.
It’s our most recent stable version, with only minimal changes to address issues identified in the previous release.
This is also our "lightest" release ever, in terms of memory consumption. But this is the result of many years of work, not any specific change in this particular build, so I’ll follow up with a dedicated analysis as we collect more data.
While we meant to release
5.5.1.Final, I made a mistake - so this version number will be skipped.
Happy now to announce a successful release of Hibernate ORM
5.5.2.Final! It is already available for download from your favourite Maven Central mirror.
Today we released yet another maintenance release: Hibernate ORM
5.4.29.Final is now available for download from your favourite Maven Central mirror.
There’s nothing particularly exciting beyond the usual small bugfixes - I hope you’ll agree that this is a good thing.
