The PHP team is happy to announce that version 1.7.0-rc1 of the MongoDB PHP library is now available. This library is a high-level abstraction for the
MongoDB\Database::listCollectionNames methods allow enumeration of database and collection names without returning additional metadata. In the case of collection enumeration, this leverages the
nameOnly option for
listCollections and avoids taking a collection-level lock on the server.
MongoDB\Operation\Aggregate class now implements the
MongoDB\Operation\Explainable interface and can be used with
MongoDB\Collection::explain(). This is an alternative to the
explain option supported by
MongoDB\Collection::aggregate() and allows for more verbose output when explaining aggregation pipelines.
As previously announced, this version drops compatibility with PHP 5.6 and requires PHP 7.0 or newer.
