I'm looking to get began dealing with NHibernate. I visited download the most recent production release at https://www.hibernate.org/6.html. The NHibernate download states development beside it, whereas other downloads say Production.

Is things i want?

The hyperlink there really goes to some page on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/nhibernate/files/) that lists all the .Internet downloads, not only the main one proven. After that you'll find all available releases. The present release sometimes of writing may be the 2.1..GA release.

(Unsure why the primary Hibernate page says 2.. beta - that's not so useful...)

NHibernate is no more on www.hibernate.org, there's just old stuff around.

Have a look at www.nhforge.org. The presently actual version is 2.1.
