MongoDB 5.0: Guide to What’s New

MongoDB 5.0 is the latest generation of the database most wanted by developers. The new 5.0 release makes it even easier for you to support a broader range of workloads, introduces new ways of future proofing your applications, and further enhances privacy and security. Key MongoDB 5.0 highlights include:

  • Native time series collections, clustered indexing, and window functions make it easier, faster, and lower cost to build and run applications like IoT and financial analytics, and to enrich your enterprise data with time series measurements.
  • Live Resharding allows you to change the shard key for your collections on-demand as your workloads grow and evolve – with no database downtime or complex migrations.
  • The Versioned API future-proofs your applications. Starting with MongoDB 5.0, you can upgrade to the latest MongoDB releases without the risk of introducing backward-breaking changes that require application-side rework.
  • MongoDB’s unique Client-Side Field Level Encryption now extends some of the industry’s strongest data privacy controls to multi-cloud databases.
