Planned release date for 5.2.18


Is there already a fixed release date for version 5.2.18.

And besides that a meta question: Is there a place where I could have found the answer on my own?

Best regards, Jens


No, you can’t find the information on your own as the date is not set.

We are currently focusing on 5.3. The release will happen at some point but I can’t say when.


Is it possible to have a rough estimate regarding the month?

Currently a bug in 5.2.17 that has already been fixed in 5.2.18-SNAPSHOT looks like a showstopper for us :frowning:


You should consider migrating to 5.3 as well. Not only that you will get that bug fixed, but it’s better on the long-run as well since 5.3 is going to be a reference branch used for Wildfly/JBoss.


Thanks for the hint.

Unfortunately, we have to support containers that do not provide JPA 2.2. Threrefore the 5.3 series is not an option in the next few months.


I’ll post something on the hibernate-dev@ list to see how we can finalize something. I’ll let you know here the outcome.


Hi! Any news on the 5.2.18 release date?


No news so far. You could upgrade to 5.3 if you don’t want to wait for 5.2.18. The 5.3 branch is stable and he migrating shouldn’t be difficult.
