Hibernate ORM 5.3 current status


Hi all,

during 5.3 CR1 it was announced that on Feb 28 will be released Final or CR2 version.
So my question is what’s the current status of version 5.3 ? Is there any blocker which needs to be resolved before CR2 or Final ? Or when can I find any information about current status.
There are quite a lot jira issues with fix version 5.3. So I’m not sure whether all of them must be resolved before release.



The situation has changed and is a bit blurry right now. We are making some efforts to reduce further compatibility issues for migrations from 5.1 to 5.3 and from 5.3 to 6, due to some external requirements.

Next version will be a CR2 for sure, not a Final. Still not sure on when it will be released though.

Hopefully, it shouldn’t take too long now.
