The r2014.03.12 release of the mgo (http://labix.org/mgo
) MongoDB driver for Go
was just tagged. This release has both new features and bug fixes, and is API
compatible with the prior release.
The following changes were made:
- Experimental SASL and Kerberos support.
To enable the feature, mgo must be built with the -tags sasl
option, which is disabled by default because it forces the
dynamic linkage with the system Cyrus SASL library.
The new Session.Login method takes the new mgo.Credential type as
a parameter for authenticating with mechanisms other than straight
The mgo.DialInfo type also received new fields, matching those
in mgo.Credential, to establish the authentication at dial time:
The new DialInfo.Source field allows selecting a database for
authentication other than the default database, even when using
the standard username/password mechanism (MONGODB-CR).
These new options are also supported using URL parameters that
are common to all MongoDB drivers with Kerberos support (authSource,
authService, and gssapiServiceName):
For details on configuring the MongoDB server with Kerberos support,

There was a small chance that the reply handling function might
