It's my great pleasure to announce the release of Hibernate OGM
4.1.0.Beta1! This version shines with:
* support for CouchDB
* query execution via JPA
* new Option API and much more
Please check out the announcement post  which has all the details.
The first milestone to support Apache Lucene 4 is now available:
Even though this is an Alpha release I encourage all users to start a
branch to try this out
and have an own milestone, as we managed so far to avoid breaking most
Lucene's APIs changed very significantly, so this milestone is
intended to facilitate migrations.
