Does hbm going to die in Hibernate 6

We have a legacy code written in Hibernate 3.1 and I’m working to upgrade it to 5.8.

I really want to remove all hbm files. Is there an Hibernate version that will eventually deprecate it?

HBM is deprecated and will most likely go away in some 6.x or 7.x version, but right now, we still support it since there is no XML based alternative for Hibernate specific features yet.
