MongoDB: State of the Union

I am young, but if there is one thing I have learned, it is that communication is everything. In what I feel is a really smart move, the MongoDB team just posted the State of MongoDB as of March, 2010. I sense this will be the first of many state of the union addresses by the team.

The key points of the post, that I will take away, are that they plan to put out a stable release every three months and that they are about half way done with their plot to take over the world. The major features over the next six to twelve months are:

  • better replication: real time, replica sets, more options for data durability
  • production ready sharding
  • more features for working with embedded documents
  • flushing out more atomic update operators
  • single server durability
  • full text search

Lofty goals! Cheers to the MongoDB team for continuing to be so open with the community. Be sure to follow their blog for more news.
