Your M0/M2/M5 Atlas cluster(s) will be automatically upgraded to MongoDB 6.0 in March 2023.
What’s in the update?
MongoDB 6.0 introduces new features and improvements such as:
- Enriched change streams, a core component of an event-driven architecture
- Queryable Encryption (in Preview), for enhanced data security
- Performance improvements to key operators, such as $lookup and$graphlookup
What do I need to do?
To ensure a seamless transition, we recommend updating your driver version to ensure continued compatibility with your applications. Visit our Docs to see which driver versions are compatible with 6.0 and download the latest version.
While most upgrades do not require any application changes, we recommend that you test your applications against MongoDB version 6.0.
You can upgrade to a dedicated Atlas cluster for more flexibility and control over when major version updates and maintenance are performed, as well as gain access to premium features like point-in-time restore capabilities, automated data archival, schema recommendations, unrestricted Atlas search indexes and more.
