A decent amount of uproar was generated this week when JBoss developers indicated that the latest stable release of Hibernate (3.5.5) would have deprecated support for CGLIB as a bytecode provider.  Developers can still use CGLIB as the bytecode provider, but JBoss will not maintain the integration anymore.  This is because the developers of the CGLIB project (a separate project outside of JBoss) have stopped working on it.  For four years JBoss has tried to submit patches to the aging bytecode library, but they have gotten no responses.  Hibernate will focus on its integration with the Javassist library now.
