Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 0.11.2 has been released
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 19:00:10 GMT

Apache CouchDB 0.11.2 has been released and is available for download:

Changes in this release:

  * Replicator buxfixes for replicating design documents from secured databases.
  * Better error messages on invalid URL requests.
  * User documents can now be deleted by admins or the user.
  * Avoid potential DOS attack by guarding all creation of atoms.
  * Some Futon and JavaScript library bugfixes.

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 resolution.

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,
