ArangoDB 2.2.2 Release: Enhancements & Bug Fixes

This version is deprecated. Download the new version of ArangoDB

A maintenance release of ArangoDB 2.2 is available via the package manager or from our download page.

v2.2.2 (2014-08-08)

  • allow storing non-reserved attribute names starting with an underscore Previous versions of ArangoDB parsed away all attribute names that started with an underscore (e.g. `_test`, `_foo`, `_bar`) on all levels of a document (root level and sub-attribute levels). While this behavior was documented, it was unintuitive and prevented storing documents inside other documents, e.g.:
        "_key" : "foo",
        "_type" : "mydoc",
        "references" : [
            "_key" : "something",
            "_rev" : "...",
            "value" : 1
            "_key" : "something else",
            "_rev" : "...",
            "value" : 2

In the above example, previous versions of ArangoDB removed all attributes and sub-attributes that started with underscores, meaning the embedded documents would lose some of their attributes. 2.2.2 should preserve such attributes, and will also allow storing user-defined attribute names on the top-level even if they start with underscores (such as `_type` in the above example).

  • fix conversion of JavaScript String, Number and Boolean objects to JSON. Objects created in JavaScript using `new Number(…)`, `new String(…)`, or `new Boolean(…)` were not converted to JSON correctly.
  • fixed a race condition on task registration (i.e. `require(“org/arangodb/tasks”).register()`) this race condition led to undefined behavior when a just-created task with no offset and no period was instantly executed and deleted by the task scheduler, before the `register` function returned to the caller.
  • changed run-tests.sh to execute all suitable tests.
  • switch to new version of gyp
  • fixed upgrade button
