Upgrade MongoDB driver on Meteor


I need to use MongoDB driver version 3.1.4 as there are some retryable writes fixes there for bulk updates (https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/NODE-1513)

How can I upgrade the driver version from 3.0.11 to 3.1.x?


You’ll need to clone the npm-mongo package into your packages/ folder and edit the package.js file accordingly.

Multiple unwanted mongodb connections saturates db deployment

Isn’t this coming in Meteor 1.7.1?


It may, but the current next release documentation still states 3.0.11.


The driver has already been updated on the release-1.7.1 branch: https://github.com/meteor/meteor/blob/release-1.7.1/History.md. :slightly_smiling_face:


Do we have a release date for 1.7.1?


It will be released when it is ready. It is currently in RC stage so I don’t think it will be too long.


You can of course use 1.7.1-rc.5 if you cannot wait…
