the Hibernate community released a new version of Hibernate Search: 5.8.0.Final
The highlight is that it's now compatible with all versions of Elasticsearch from version 2.0 to 5.6!
And of course we also implemented loads of other improvements, almost two hundred issues resolved!
From higher throughput, a better Simple Query DSL, more advanced options for Analyzer configurations, smarter usage of the Elasticsearch REST Client, just to name a few.
