Monger 1.7.0-beta1 Is Released


Monger is an idiomatic Clojure MongoDB driver for a more civilized age. It has batteries included, offers powerful expressive query DSL, strives to support every MongoDB 2.0+ feature and has sane defaults. It also has solid documentation.

1.7.0-beta1 is a completely backwards-compatible (besides dropped Clojure 1.3 support) development milestone that introduces a few minor features and updated dependencies.

Changes between 1.6.0 and 1.7.0-beta1

Fune Tuning Cursor Options

monger.query DSL now provides a way to fine tune database cursor options:

(with-collection "products"
  (options {:notimeout true, :slaveok false}) ;; where keyword matches Bytes/QUERYOPTION_*
  (options [:notimeout :slaveok])
  (options com.mongodb.Bytes/QUERYOPTION_NOTIMEOUT) ;; support Java constants
  (options :notimeout)

monger.cursor is a new namespace that provides the plumbing for cursor fine tuning but should not be widely used directly.

Joda Time Integration Improvements: LocalDate

LocalDate instance serialization is now supported by Monger Joda Time integration.
