MongoDb 1.8 Released

One of my projects in my current job is using MongoDB. My boyfriend, who is working as a Solutions Architect in the same company, introduced this database to me. This is not a relational database for this is a document-oriented database. 

To define, from Wikipedia, MongoDB (from "humongous") is an open source, scalable, high-performance, schema-free, web-scale, enterprisedocument-oriented database written in the C++ programming language. The database is document-oriented so it manages collections of JSON-like documents. Many applications can, thus, model data in a more natural way, as data can be nested in complex hierarchies and still be query-able and indexable. (

And last March 16, 2011, MongoDB 1.8 has been released as the stable version and containing the fixes from previous versions and other improvements.
