Hibernate ORM 6.0 is still in development:
Latest release announcement (2021-10-11): 6.0.0.Beta1.
A detailed list of new features, improvements and fixes in this series can be found on our issue tracker.
6.0 switches reading from JDBC
ResultSet by name to reading by position. This
required significant changes to the Hibernate type system.
6.0 switched from Antlr v2 to Antlr v4 for its HQL translation. Antlr v4 itself is more performant. Additionally we refactored the grammars to be more efficient
In previous versions of Hibernate, JPA Criteria queries were translated by first rendering the Criteria as an HQL query. 6.0 changes this so that HQL and Criteria are both translated into the same form : the Semantic Query Model (SQM).
