Hi @Sangita_Nalkar

We always release the Debian packages right away after the release on Github. 1.25.1 was released to Debian on November 8th. We can see here that 1.25.1 is currently in the Debian testing distribution

https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/mongo-c-driver

You can also see it in Fedora packages

Hi @Rishabh_Bisht

Thank you for your quick response.

mongo-c driver is not available in EPEL for RHEL 7, RHEL 8 and RHEL 9 as seen in yum info command output I have provided earlier.

Also v1.23.1 is present on Ubuntu 23.04 and not the latest as following:
