10gen released a critical update for mongoDB 2.4.0 which affected queries on secondaries, you should upgrade asap. The python mongo driver followed the 2.4.x releases and got bumped to 2.5 this week-end. I am pleased to announce that I took the chance to add the kerberos authentication support to both ebuilds while bumping them.
- GSSAPI (Kerberos) authentication
- SSL certificate validation with hostname matching
- Delegated and role based authentication
