Community Day Trivia #22: When was MongoDB 1.0.0 released?

We’ll be posting trivia challenges throughout the Community Day event!

The best answer for each challenge will be marked as a solution and earn the poster a promo code for $100 of Atlas credits and a Community Day 2021 Trivia Winner forum badge that can also be used as a title on the forums.

A great answer will include some information such as a link to more information or a tip on how you figured out the solution.

You can help us decide the best answer to a trivia challenge by liking great responses! To give everyone a chance at earning Atlas credits, we will use “have you already had a trivia solution accepted” to break ties in favour of those who haven’t had a solution yet.

When was MongoDB 1.0.0 released?

MongoDB version 1.0.0 was released Feb 2009

Hi @Michael,

Unfortunately that’s not the correct answer. Is there a more reliable source you could compare with?

Guess university is too long back, I was tough not to quote wikipedia…

Here is a better source 1.0 GA Released | MongoDB Blog
By this, and I’d vote that this is correct, MongoDB 1.0.0 went GA August 27th, 2009

Hi @Michael,

That’s definitely a better source, although an even better source is the MongoDB source code on GitHub: Release r1.0.0 · mongodb/mongo · GitHub :wink: .

There’s a very meta article on Wikipedia: Wikipedia is not a reliable source.

The general notion is that Wikipedia might be eventually consistent via the collaborative effort of volunteer editors, but factual errors and opinions often creep in. You could cite GitHub release tag & official release announcements to support correcting software release dates.

February 2009 is actually the date of the first official MongoDB release: MongoDB 0.8.0.

If you’d like to become a Wikipedia contributor, there are some easy wins on the MongoDB page ;-).
