MongoDB 1.7.5 has been released.
This is the last release in the 1.7.x development cycle.
The next release will be 1.8.0-rc0.

Notable Changes:
- single server durability: http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Journaling
- extent allocation improvements
- improved replica set connectivity for mongos
- getLastError improvement for sharding

Since this is the last 1.7.x release, we are looking to get a lot of
people testing this release.

Downloads: http://www.mongodb.org/downloads
Change Log: http://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER/fixforversion/10214

Please let us know of any issues,
-Eliot

You can track jira for any dates.
Depends on how user testing goes.
rc0 should be out in a week or 2

Congratulations, and thanks for the single server durability
especially!

Why is 10gen only doing a single beta release to cover the *most visible* new feature slated for 1.8? Single-server durability is a pretty big change (based on the commits I have seen), so I'm curious why it rates only a single beta release?

Or do you consider 1.8rc0, rc1, rc2, etc. as places for fixing significant bugs with this feature?

1.7.5 isn't a beta release, its a dev release.
1.8.0-rc0 is kind of like "beta".

Some people (see http://news.ycombinator.org/item?id=2148305 for
instance, but I've heard that somewhere else) wonder why the --dur
wouldn't be the default, to avoid people shooting themselves in the
foot.

Is it planned ? What's your opinion on that ?

Durability is a new feature, and should be treated as such.
While it is currently not the default, that may change in a later release.

I've been checking every day for this in synaptic, but it hasn't appeared yet. I have


line in my /etc/apt/sources.list file, and have mongo-unstable installed. This is how I normally get updates, but synaptic tells me the latest version is 20101221. Am I doing something stupid or have the packages not been updated yet?

Also, It would be really nice if the package versions contained the mongo version somehow.

1.7.5-20110127 would be much nicer than just a date - would that be very difficult to do?

Let me ping the engineer and get an ETA for the Ubuntu packages.

So just tried this myself on 9.04 and got

mongodb-unstable 20101221

Unstable is always the current development branch, i.e. 1.7.x

However, this date is old so will check why there is not a more recent
build for unstable.

Congrats mates !

I did some benchmarks today, I will perform these tests again later
with the 1.7.5.

We're planning on changing to roughly this versioning scheme on the
packages at the 1.8 release.

Richard

For single server durability and a change that requires multiple
writes to MongoDB files are all writes recorded in the journal before
any might be attempted?

@mark yes, exactly.

Lovely mongostat ... I love it :-)

Moreover, I got better performances when queries have to access disk
than Mongo 1.6.5... but set-up was a bit different, I'll launch my
tests with the same config tomorrow.
