MongoDB PHP Extension 1.13.0 Released

The PHP team is happy to announce that version 1.13.0 of the mongodb PHP extension is now available on PECL.

Release Highlights

MongoDB\Driver\Manager::__construct() supports two new URI options: srvMaxHosts and srvServiceName. srvMaxHosts may be used with sharded clusters to limit the number of hosts that will be added to a seed list following the initial SRV lookup. srvServiceName may be used with self-managed deployments to customize the default service name (i.e. “mongodb”).

This release introduces support for SDAM Monitoring, which applications can use to monitor internal driver behavior for server discovery and monitoring. Similar to the existing command monitoring API, applications can implement the MongoDB\Driver\Monitoring\SDAMSubscriber interface and registering the subscriber globally or for a single Manager using MongoDB\Driver\Monitoring\addSubscriber() or MongoDB\Driver\Manager::addSubscriber, respectively. In addition to many new event classes, this feature introduces the ServerDescription and TopologyDescription classes.

This release upgrades our libbson and libmongoc dependencies to 1.21.1. The libmongocrypt dependency has been upgraded to 1.3.2. Support for MongoDB 3.4 and earlier has been removed.
