We are happy to announce the second alpha release of the 1.6 series. We introduced a few new features and fixed quite a few bugs.
A big thank you goes out to Dane Lowe for implementing the conversion support from entities to entity views. I’d also like to thank Ritesh and slyoldfox for investigating and fixing issues they faced.
Most of the enhancements delivered in this release improve the performance of a few types of queries. The support for
GROUPING SETS is user facing which allows creating summarizations of aggregated data. For more information about grouping sets, take a look into the documentation.
This version now also adds support for Spring Data 2.4 and thus also Spring Framework 5.3. We also worked on the support for Java 16 and thanks to slyoldfox, it seems we now also support the use of Spring Boot Dev-Tools.
Since we fixed a query plan cache related issue that could lead to wrong queries being executed in some cases, 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.
Enjoy the release and stay tuned for the next one!
