JBoss has announced the release of Hibernate Search 4.2 final. You may download it from Sourceforge or use the Maven artifacts.

In the new release, some interesting features are included:

  • Compatibility with Apache Lucene 3.6, the suggested version being 3.6.2
  • Integration with Apache Tika for indexing files like MP3 or word documents (as well as the indexing the metadata of those files)
  • JBoss AS 7 simplified integration via a set of modules
  • Performance improvements for the Near Real Time support
  • Compatibility with the latest Hibernate ORM 4.1.9.Final
