MongoDB 2.4 Released


The latest version of the doc-oriented database features improved performance and bug fixes.

The MongoDB Engineering Team has released MongoDB 2.4, the latest stable version of the database, which contains several new features as well as performance improvements and bug fixes.

MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database that is designed for ease of development and scaling. According to the product website, the latest version includes the following new features: hash-based sharding, capped arrays, geospatial enhancements, faster counts, working set analyzer, and V8 JavaScript engine.

MongoDB 2.4 also adds support for boolean searches in MongoDB databases as a beta feature. According to the website, the new functionality lets you “search text in data stored in MongoDB, using an index that updates in real-time and is always consistent with the data set.”

Additionally, MongoDB 2.4 includes two new security enhancements: Kerberos modular authentication and role-based access control. The website states that Kerberos is part of MongoDB Enterprise and allows integration with enterprise-level user management systems. The role-based access control feature allows more granular management of privileges. Note that Kerberos authentication is only present in MongoDB Enterprise Edition.

MongoDB runs on most platforms and supports 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. For more details go to the MongoDB website.
