Welcome to the MongoDB C++ Driver!

Branches - releases/stable versus master

The default checkout branch of this repository is releases/stable. This will always contain the latest stable release of the driver. The master branch is used for active development. master should only be used when making contributions back to the driver, as it is not stable for use in production.

See Driver Status by family and version for more details about the various versions of the driver.
