This is a maintenance release that adds more protection to its internal components to prevent and diagnose high CPU consumption when something goes wrong with wait implementation. Uncatchable exceptions like OutOfMemoryException and StackOverflowException are not not handled by Hangfire to avoid leaving the process in a inconsistent state. Finally command batching now works with Microsoft.Data.SqlClient package. Also some very minor features were added, please see the release notes for details.

Thanks to @twinmind, @0xced and @Westat-Transportation for their help with this release!
