MongoDB Scala Connector releases!

Version 1.1.0 of the MongoDB Spark connector has been released. As well as the MongoDB Spark Connector 2.0.0-rc0, bring Spark 2.0 support.


This is the first release after the 1.0.0 driver and contains some API improvements and updates based on feedback from users. Many thanks to all those that have provided feedback either through the MongoDB User mailing list, via StackOverflow or via the Spark Jira project.

It’s been thrilling to get such great feedback and find out about some of the real world scenarios the connector has been used for. One of my favourites so far has been about how China Eastern Airlines and how they use the connector to save time and money. But wether you’re a big or small user of the connector, I’d really appreciate your feedback and comments. It really is central to making this connector even better and more accessible.

Improvements in 1.1.0
