2. Replication Election Enhancements – MongoDB reduces replica set failover time and accelerates the detection of multiple simultaneous primaries.
3. Sharded Cluster Enhancements – MongoDB 3.2 deprecates the use of three mirrored Mongodb instances for config servers.
4. Partial Indexes– MongoDB 3.2 provides the option to create indexes that only index the documents in a collection that meet a specified filter expression. By indexing a subset of the documents in a collection, partial indexes have lower storage requirements and reduced performance costs for index creation and maintenance.
5. Document Validation – Starting in 3.2, MongoDB provides the capability to validate documents during updates and insertions. Validation rules are specified on a per-collection basis. MongoDB provides the following new options:
validator – option to specify validation rules.
validationLevel – option to determine how strictly MongoDB applies the validation rules to existing documents during an update.
validationAction– option to determine whether to error and reject documents that violate the validation rules, or warn about the violations in the log but allow invalid documents.
6. MongoDB Tools Enhancements – Mongodump and Mongorestore Support Archive Files and stdout/in
