As part of our commitment to continually improving the stability, scalability and functionality of the GameSparks platform, we are very pleased to announce the upgrade of our Preview environment to use MongoDB 3.2.
We will be upgrading our Live environment the week commencing 24th October.
The upgrade to MongoDB 3.2 contains a number of new features including Document Validation, Partial Indexes and Aggregation pipeline enhancements such as $sample and $lookup.
Please be aware you will be unable to use the new features until we have completed the upgrade in Live. Doing so before the Live environment upgrade may cause your games to become unusable.
We have performed extensive testing of MongoDB 3.2 in our pre-production environments and are impressed with the backwards compatibility, stability and increased performance.
Whilst we expect no impact to existing games we encourage you to review your games and ensure they are functioning as expected in the Preview environment. If you do encounter any issues – or have any other concerns – then please raise a support ticket https://support.gamesparks.net.
