To Download the latest version of Hibernate you can follow the given linkhttp://sourceforge.net/projects/hibernate/files/
When you will download the hibernate 4 jar file you should be care about that which format you are selecting to download. In this tutorial I have downloaded the zip file.
When your download will be completed you will be found a zip file. To use the jar files you will have to unzip the downloaded file. You will see a folder lib\required into which the basic jar file "hibernate-core-4.0.0.Final.jar" is available. Now when you will start to go to create a project you will be required more jar files in your classpath except it. These are as follows :
antlr-2.7.7.jar commons-collections-3.2.1.jar classmate-0.5.4.jar dom4j-1.6.1.jar javassist-3.12.1.GA.jar hibernate-commons-annotations-4.0.1.Final.jar hibernate-jpa-2.0-api-1.0.1.Final.jar jboss-logging-3.1.0.CR2.jar mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar
