Recently at MongoDB World, it was announced that MongoDB 3.6 would come out in late 2017 or early 2018 (as per the normal schedule). The feature list was very light, as the focus is more on services like Atlas. In this talk, we will go into what we know is confirmed or already completed, and what is on the desired list.
Some of bigger items are:
$comments and $hints in aggregations
$mergeObjects / $$Remove
Fix deep nesting in aggregation (overflow bug)
Intital improvements to support transactions in the future
randomSample for profile added (was added to Percona Server for MongoDB 3.2/ 3.4 already)
