MongoDB PHP Extension 1.8.0beta1 Released

The PHP team is happy to announce that version 1.8.0beta1 of the mongodb PHP extension is now available on PECL.

Release Highlights

This beta release provides support for new features in MongoDB 4.4.

For authentication, this release adds support for the new MONGODB-AWS authentication mechanism. The SCRAM mechanism now supports shorter conversation when authenticating with the server.

The delete command (and its helpers), delete operations in bulk writes, as well as findAndDelete operations now support specifying a hint option.

For drivers built on top of the extension, there is a new driver key in the driverOptions when creating a manager. This can be used to pass custom metadata for use during the server handshake.

As previously announced, this version drops compatibility with PHP 5.6, limiting support to PHP 7.0 and newer.
