Release Highlights

Node 20 support

The MongoDB Node.js Driver now supports Node.js 20! :tada:

runCursorCommand API

We have added the Db#runCursorCommand method which can be used to execute generic cursor commands. This API complements the generic Db#command method.

TypeScript support for new time series options

The driver now has TypeScript support for the bucketMaxSpanSeconds and bucketRoundingSeconds options which will be available in MongoDB 7.0. You can read more about these options here.
