>> vice president of Apache CouchDB at the Apache Software Foundation. “Data
>> access is like any other utility. Applications must excel at keeping data

>> >>>>>CouchDB 2.0 represents major contributions to the Apache project.
>> All the clustering features of BigCouch, an open source variant of CouchDB,
>> have now been folded back into Apache CouchDB. The community has also
>> completed development of a new Web dashboard called Fauxton, with
>> streamlined admin tools, rich code editors, and a UI for managing database
>> replication. The beta release of CouchDB 2.0 containing these features is
>> available now at <link>. The community encourages feedback for

>> early 2015.

>> >>>>>At ApacheCon Europe, the CouchDB community also announced plans for
>> upcoming new features. The first new feature is a declarative querying
>> system, code for which currently resides in an open source repository. The
>> community also announced its intention to evaluate soon-to-be-open-sourced
>> code that would advance CouchDB indexing capabilities. These potential new
>> features would add integrated full-text indexing for search based on Apache
>> Lucene™, extend CouchDB view indexing to clustered environments, and
>> automatically compact indexes with improved logic.
