Apache CouchDB 1.0.0 has been released and is available for download:

This is a huge milestone for the CouchDB community, and we'd like to thank
every single person who's helped us get this far. This project would be
nothing without its community, and we are fortunate enough to be blessed
with a very healthy one.

Changes in this release:

 * More efficient header commits.
 * Use O_APPEND to save lseeks.
 * Faster implementation of pread_iolist(). Further improves performance on
  concurrent reads.
 * Added authentication caching
 * Faster default view collation.
 * Added option to include update_seq in view responses.

This builds on the changes made in 0.11.1, also released today.

Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and
indexed in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. CouchDB also offers
incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and

CouchDB provides a RESTful JSON API than can be accessed from any
environment that allows HTTP requests. There are myriad third-party client
libraries that make this even easier from your programming language of
choice. CouchDB’s built in Web administration console speaks directly to the
database using HTTP requests issued from your browser.

CouchDB is written in Erlang, a robust functional programming language ideal
for building concurrent distributed systems. Erlang allows for a flexible
design that is easily scalable and readily extensible.

Relax and prosper,
