MongoDB 1.6 stable release released

    Almost on time, the 10gen team released a new stable release of the NoSQL MongoDB database.

    Of the new products, I want to note such declared features:

    * Auto sharding - now you can create clusters for large amounts of data with data “spreading” over cluster servers
    * Replica Sets - allows you to create clusters with fast replication and fault tolerance
    * Operator $ or - if you had to write a request before using JavaScript, now OR operations work as a standard query
    * Up to 64 indexes per collection
    * The $ slice operator is a very convenient thing, you can select the first 5 pieces of records or the last 5, for example.
    * Support for UNIX sockets and IPv6
    * Improved service support for Windows

    You can download it on the Release Notes download page.
