A bugfix release for Hibernate Search 4.1 ! Some of you have been reporting reduced performance after migrating from 3.4 or 4.0, which was not expected at all as the internals got smarter at each release. It turns out there was a quite critical bug: file handle leaks.
Another CR for Hibernate Search 4.1 is ready! Even being in candidate release phase, we introduced something more than the usual minor bugfixes, as the following improvements are too nice to delay and technically not very risky.
Hibernate Search 4.1.0.Beta2 is released, and contains a very interesting improvement: it is now possible to precisely express which paths will be indexed when using @IndexedEmbedded.
We tagged Hibernate Search 4.1.0.Alpha1, and artifacts are now ready to be downloaded. 4.1 is meant to mainly upgrade the core dependencies and will have a quick development cycle.
The OpenBlend conference in Ljubljana, Slovenia will be held the 15th September in the fabulous setting of the Ljubljana Castle.
While our focus has been on the exciting new improvements in Hibernate Search 4, since the release of the last stable release 3.4.0.Final we had much interesting feedback from the community, including bugreports and patches.
The release cycle of Hibernate Search 4 has begun. Alpha 1 is out. We already have many things implemented so this change is consistent and more releases will come quickly.
