We are happy to announce the first alpha release of the 1.6 series. We introduced two very interesting features that I would like to highlight. The first is the support for specifying collection behavior for a multi-collection via the new
@MultiCollectionMapping annotation which can be used to configure a comparator or ordering for the collection within the indexed collection/map. The next notable feature is the support for secondary entity view roots which can be imagined like correlations on steroids.
Since we also fixed a few issues, some in the Spring Data integration, and one concurrency issue during entity view updater initialization, you should update as soon as possible to avoid running into these issues.
Take a look into the changelog for a full list of changes and improvements.
I wish you all the best, stay safe and healthy in this hard times! Enjoy the release and stay tuned for the next one!
