  • [AER-4494] - (SINDEX) Memory corruption of stack variable causing undetermined result for list/map indexing.
  • [AER-4103] - (SINDEX) Server is crashing while creating index with index name more than 256 size.

From @Alvin_Richards’ blog post, it seems there is support for points within a region/radius. What about points OUTSIDE a region/radius ? Would I be able to make such a query ?

Here is an equivalent in MongoDB where I can do both minDistance and maxDistance filters.

Can you share what the use case you have in mind? Thanks.

Searching for people who are atleast X distance away from a user.

Great feature-release! Can’t express how much we enjoy the new cdt list ops :+1: Keep up the great work!

So 3.7.0 supports Polygons with holes (i.e. donut shapes), which would give you the ability you describe. I would agree this is not the simplest way to express your query! Given the under lying mechanisms, this is either just an API over the basic operations we have or an extension to AeroCircle to support holes.
