and a newer R15 or R16B based release with a newer Erlang/OTP runtime. There is no functional
difference between these versions, however you may wish to integrate CouchDB with other Erlang
modules that are not yet compatible with the latest OTP release.

- 
- === CouchDB 1.0.2 ===
- 
- Currently there are a number of non-critical issues in 1.0.2 that you need to be aware of;
both have work-arounds documented in the JIRA comments. These are both resolved in CouchDB
1.1.1 and newer.
- 
-  * [[https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-577|COUCHDB-577]] couchdb @ winxp: Simple
RegExp's can not be executed
-  * [[https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-963|COUCHDB-963]] while running CouchDB
as a service, the erlang erlsrv process dies periodically during restarting CouchDB (POST
/_restart fails) - either use the .bat version only, or apply the workarounds noted within
the ticket comments. This is addressed upstream in Erlang/OTP R14B03 and a work-around in
CouchDB 1.0.3 & later.
-  * Download '''couchdb-1.0.2''' - With Erlang/OTP R14B01 and JS 1.8.0 [[https://github.com/downloads/dch/couchdb/setup-couchdb-1.0.2+COUCHDB-963_otp_R14B01+OTP-9139.exe|here]]
- 
- 
- === CouchDB 1.0.1 ===
- 
- Note that CouchDB versions prior to 1.0.2 should not be used due to:
- 
-  * 1 cross-site scripting security issue [[http://couchdb.apache.org/security.html|CVE-2010-3854]]
-  * 2 bugs that, in certain situations, could cause data loss [[https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-852|COUCHDB-852]]
and [[https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-844|COUCHDB-844]].
-  * Only on Windows, CouchDB 1.0.1 crashes on Windows when a database or index file reaches
4Gb in Erlang/OTP versions previous to R14B01. This is due to a Erlang/OTP Windows bug related
with appending to files with a size equal to 4Gb or larger. Erlang/OTP release R14B01 no longer
has this bug.
-  * A significant stability bug was resolved in Erlang/OTP R13B04 which caused CouchDB to
hang occasionally when run as a service.
