LiquiBase 1.6.0 Released with Hibernate Support


The LiquiBase team is proud to announce the 1.6.0 LiquiBase Core release.

This release focuses primarily on new Hibernate integration which allows you to use the diffChangeLog functionality to automatically generate LiquiBase database change information based on updated Hibernate mapping information.

This functionality is similar to what is offered with hbm2ddl, but with the added ability to control and modify the changes before they are applied. For more information, see http://www.liquibase.org/manual/hibernate

Additional functionality includes a new "tagDatabase" tag, a "primaryKeyName" attribute on the column tag, as well as many bug fixes and minor feature improvements.

LiquiBase Core 1.6 can be downloaded from http://www.liquibase.org/download. The Maven and Grails plug-ins will be updated over the next week.

Full release information is available in the official release announcement.

LiquiBase is a database independent open source (LGPL) database refactoring and change tracking tool that supports many advanced features such as rollback, SQL generation, database diff, and database documentation generation.
