Hibernate ORM version 4.1.7 has just been released. This is a bug fix release containing 27 fixes. See the changelog for the complete list of fixes. Again, 4.1.7 benefited from a lot of community involvement. We really appreciate all the help in terms of pull requests, testing, comments, ideas, etc.
As usual, the artifacts have been uploaded to the JBoss Nexus repository (which is synchronized to Maven Central regularly) and the release bundles have been uploaded to the Hibernate SourceForge in both ZIP and TGZ formats.
