What’s new in Robomongo 0.8.4

Roboteam is happy to announce the release of Robomongo 0.8.4 (currently available version is 0.8.4 RC2). In this version we weremainly concentrated on SSH and SSL protocols and several bug fixes.

Although we are showing screenshots of Robomongo for Linux, all this new features are available for Mac OS X and Windows as well. Next time we will use Windows for such showcase 🙂

For the changes in 0.8.4 RC2 please read changelog at the bottom of this page.

Access your MongoDB using SSH protocol

You now can connect to MongoDB via SSH tunnel. We support two methods of authentication: with password and with private key:


We would like to know how this feature works or doesn’t work for you. Feel free to post your comments to SSH support issue.

Access your MongoDB using SSL protocol

In this version we are doing first steps in order to fully support SSL protocol. Right now we support only passphrase-lesscertificates and we do not support Certificate Authority (CA) certificates. This is planned for the future releases.

As with SSH feature, we would like to know how SSL works for you. Feel free to post your comments toSupport for mongod’s with SSL issue.

Note, that the default distribution of MongoDB does not contain support for SSL. To use SSL, you must either buildMongoDB locally passing the --ssl option to scons or use MongoDB Enterprise.

Autoexpand first document in Tree View

When opening documents in Tree View, you now can autoexpand first document automatically. Note, that only first level of document’s fields is expanded (this constraint is for performance reasons).

This feature was implemented by our most active contributor — Vladimir Belozyorov. Thank you, Vladimir!
