What’s new Permalink to "What’s new"

This is the sixth patch release for JHipster v4.5.0.

This patch release that was triggered by this comment, as the previous release had an issue for all MongoDB and Cassandra entities, which made the Angular 4 code fail to compile (if you are on 4.5.5, don’t worry and look at the comment, this is really a trivial fix).

This release also comes with some really awesome new features:

  • After months of being stuck, our Upgrade sub-generator is fixed!. Many thanks to Tien Tran who fixed this! Of course there are many use cases when upgrading, and this is still very new, so feedback is highly welcome.
  • Infinispan support for both Hibernate 2nd-level cache and Spring Cache abstraction - see #5874 - many thanks to @srinivasavasu from Red Hat! This is still in BETA and should be more tested, but you can already try it and send us your feedback.
