ArangoDB 2.7.1: Latest Enhancements & Fixes

In the first maintenance release of ArangoDB 2.7 we have switched from readline to linenoise ng for line-editing and history capabilities on the command line.

Furthermore, the AQL function MERGE() improved, now working on a single array parameter, too. This allows combining the attributes of multiple objects from an array into a single object, e.g.:

  { foo: 'bar' }, 
  { quux: 'quetzalcoatl', ruled: true }, 
  { bar: 'baz', foo: 'done' }

will now return:

  "foo": "done",
  "quux": "quetzalcoatl",
  "ruled": true,
  "bar": "baz"

Other changes in 2.7.1 address issues in the replication and miscellaneous others. You can find the complete changelog on Github.

In ArangoDB 2.6.10 the following issues were solved:

  • disable replication appliers when starting in modes --upgrade, --no-server and --check-upgrade
  • more detailed output in arango-dfdb – our datafile debugger
  • fixed potential deadlock in collection status changing on Windows
