Release: Production Ready MongoDB 1.4 Released

Judging by the number of posts I’ve seen around I’d guess you’ve already heard about the MongoDB 1.4 release[1]. Anyways, I definitely had to include it here as myNoSQL covers all major NoSQL projects and follows closely all things related to the NoSQL ecosystem.

While some MongoDB users seemed quite excited about the addition of ☞ geospatial indexing, others about some ☞ query language improvements, the things that caught my attention were:

  • background indexing and indexing improvements
  • concurrency improvements
  • the lack of autosharding (still alpha, still pushing, still…)
  • the lack of improvements or alternatives for the MongoDB durability tradeoff

Speaking of performance, the 10gen people[2] have run some benchmarks comparing MongoDB 1.2 with MongoDB 1.4. Without a couple of exceptions, the performance haven’t improved radically, so I’d speculate that there is still a lot of locking involved. The benchmark source code was made available[3] so you can dig deeper into it.

All in all, good and exciting news for the NoSQL world!
