Default Write Concern Change¶
These release notes outline a change to all driver interfaces released in November 2012. See release notes for specific drivers for additional information.
As of the releases listed below, there are two major changes to all drivers:
All drivers will add a new top-level connection class that will increase consistency for all MongoDB client interfaces.
This change is non-backward breaking: existing connection classes will remain in all drivers for a time, and will continue to operate as expected. However, those previous connection classes are now deprecated as of these releases, and will eventually be removed from the driver interfaces.
The new top-level connection class is named
MongoClient, or similar depending on how host languages handle namespacing.
The default write concern on the new
MongoClientclass will be to acknowledge all write operations . This will allow your application to receive acknowledgement of all write operations.
See the documentation of Write Concern for more information about write concern in MongoDB.
