JHipster 6.10.5: Security Patch & Bug Fixes

JHipster portrait #3

What’s This About?

JHipster released a minor update of its Java application generator on November 7, 2020.

What’s in the Release?

This release patches a vulnerability in the Undertow web server (here and here[]). Three bug fixes are in, too: “Fix ExtendWith annotation for Redis cache”, “Change jdl command to use main branch “), and “Exclude translation of DataAccessException when there‚Äôs no database” ( here and here).

Should I Upgrade?

No, unless you need this security patch or the bug fixes. JHipster upgrades regenerate your project. That’s why they are at least a minor hassle.

Where Can I Get It?

You upgrade JHipster with npm install -g generator-jhipster.

When Will the Next Version Be Out?

JHipster 7.0 is the next big release. After being down to two remaining issues, it’s now back to three again. With just five weeks to the holidays, I think JHipster 7.0 will be an early 2021 release.

Developer job ads down 32% year over year, Stack Overflow questions dropped 55% since ChatGPT. I now recommend IntelliJ Community Edition because many AI code assistants don't run in Eclipse. Job ads for Quarkus hit an all-time high.
