[Hibernatespatial-announce] Release 1.1 is out now
I'm happy to announce the 1.1 release of Hibernate Spatial.
The major improvements are:
- support for Hibernate 3.6.x
- Added Dwithin() and transform() HQL-functions
- added dwithin() and havingSRID() methods to SpatialRestrictions
- Added a SpatialDialect for MySQL InnoDB
... and many more minor improvements and bugfixes.
An interface change in Hibernate 3.6 broke Hibernate Spatial 1.0. This release fixes that but has the consequence that it is compatible only with Hibernate 3.6.x. If you must use a Hibernate version between 3.2.x and 3.5.x, you are limited to using Hibernate Spatial 1.0.
The GeoDB (H2) provider is not yet ready, but will follow shortly (probably before end of June).
The next release will focus on integrating Hibernate Spatial more closely with Hibernate 4.0 Core. Since Hibernate 4 will be very different from Hibernate 3 and introduce many breaking changes, I will take the opportunity to re-engineer some aspects of Hibernate Spatial. Watch this space for more information.
