Why Are We Upgrading?

MongoDB 2.0 includes significant improvements that we wish to provide our customers (and, frankly, to use ourselves). We also wanted to ensure all of the kinks were worked out before rolling out a wide-scale release.

Here are some of the highlights of the 2.0 release:

Upgrading Drivers

For the most part, your existing drivers running against MongoDB 1.8 should still function after this upgrade. However, this is still an architectural change, and we highly recommend you test your code against your own MongoDB 2.0.2 server.

Furthermore, we recommend upgrading your drivers or Object Document Mappers to newer versions, if you can, to ensure you can take full advantage of the MongoDB 2.0 features.


If you have questions about the upgrade, please contact us at We are happy to assist you to ensure you are prepared.
