Better late than never. Here comes your late christmas present, Blaze-Persistence version 1.4.0-Alpha4! Enjoy Entity View lifecycle listeners, an integration for Jackson deserialization of Entity Views that is built into the Spring WebMvc and JAX-RS integrations automatically. This release also comes with a Spring WebFlux integration and the biggest newcomer is the GraphQL integration!
Take a look into the changelog for a full list of changes and improvements.
I would like to thank the whole community for bug reports, providing test cases and generally giving guidance for some of the new features.
The final 1.4 release is approaching the final stages. The last few planned issues are mostly about performance or emulations for databases providing fewer advanced features. We will also start working on a Hibernate 6.0 integration as the new version is almost done and we would like to shape a few features to better fit our needs.
The next release will probably be the final 1.4.0 release which is planned for the end of February 2020. After that, we will switch to 1.5 on master. In 1.5 we will be doing a few parser and join related changes to support correlations in JPQL.Next which will reduce the need for subqueries.
I wish you all great holidays and a happy new year! Have fun with this release and stay tuned for the next one!
