This is the first stable release in the mongocxx 3.3 series.

This release provides additional support for new features in MongoDB 3.6, introduces support for client sessions and change streams, and includes a large number of fixes and improvements since the 3.2 release series.

Please note that this version of mongocxx requires the MongoDB C driver 1.10.1.

See the MongoDB C++ Driver Manual and the Driver Installation Instructions for more details on downloading, installing, and using this driver.

NOTE: The mongocxx 3.3.x series does not promise API or ABI stability across patch releases.

The only change since 3.3.0-rc0 is a test that verifies client sessions are prohibited with unacknowledged writes. Here is the full list of user-visible issues that have been resolved in 3.3.0 since the prior 3.2 series:
