yarn mongodb 3.3.0

The MongoDB Node.js team is pleased to announce version 3.3.0 of the driver

Release Highlights

Server Version 4.2 feature support

This latest release brings support for features in the newly released MongoDB v4.2:

  • Distributed Transactions
  • On-Demand Materialized Views with the $merge operator
  • Wildcard Indexes
  • Retryable Reads
  • MongoDB Query Language Enhancements.

SRV Polling for Sharded Clusters

The Driver has supported connecting to a cluster using an SRV record since version 3.0. Prior to now, we would only resolve the SRV record when initially connecting. This was fine for single replica sets, as the driver is able to discover new members added after initial connect from any member of a replica set. However, in a sharded deployment, individual mongos processes do not have an awareness of each other. This means that if the deployment changes in a shared cluster, the driver would have no way of knowing without disconnecting and connecting with a new client.

Starting in 3.3, if a driver connects to a sharded cluster with an SRV record, we will now periodically check that SRV record for any changes in the deployment, and update the client-side connections accordingly.

**NOTE: This feature is only available when starting a client with { useUnifiedTopology: true } **

Beta support for MongoDB Client-Side Encryption

The driver now has support for MongoDB Client-Side Encryption. This requires installing the mongodb-client-encryption npm package in your project.

Merged mongodb-core into node-mongodb-native

Up until this release, the mongodb driver has consisted of two components:

  • mongodb-core: The low-level engine of the driver.
  • node-mongodb-native: The API layer of the driver, published as mongodb

Over time, this separation has done more harm than good, and has led to increased development time for repairing bugs and implementing new features. Starting in the 3.3 release of mongodb, we have merged mongodb-core into node-mongodb-native, removing this barrier to development.
