> >>>BUDAPEST — NOVEMBER 17, 2014 — The Apache CouchDB™ project today
> announced a beta release of CouchDB 2.0 at the ApacheCon Europe conference.
> The software release brings improved clustering technology to the open
> source NoSQL database. Now, CouchDB can more easily move data between
> different CouchDB instances and continuously synchronize changes to that
> data across CouchDB services running on commodity servers, within Web
> browsers, and directly on mobile devices.

> >>>CouchDB is an operational data store designed to ensure the flow of
> data between an application and its database remains uninterrupted and
> highly performant. The clustering improvements introduced in the beta
> version of CouchDB 2.0 extend the database’s performance properties around
> data durability and high availability, adding Dynamo distributed
> system-design principles to CouchDB horizontal scaling technology.

> >>>“The beta release of CouchDB 2.0 delivers on our vision of making
> Apache CouchDB the standard database for data movement,” said Jan Lehnardt,
> vice president of Apache CouchDB at the Apache Software Foundation. “Data
> access is like any other utility. Applications must excel at keeping data
> flowing to and from users, across data centers, and between mobile devices
> and central repositories. The beta release is a milestone for the Apache
> CouchDB community, and it’s already raising more interest in the project.”

> >>>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
> incorporation into the generally available release, which is expected in
> 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.

> >>
> >>
> >>
> >>>CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the Web and works well
> with modern Web and mobile applications. Store database records as JSON
> documents. Access documents and query indexes via HTTP. Index, combine, and
> transform JSON documents with JavaScript. Distribute data efficiently using
> CouchDB’s incremental replication and synchronization technology. CouchDB
> supports master-master setups (a.k.a. “masterless replica architectures”)
> with automatic conflict detection. CouchDB works well with modern Web and
> mobile applications. It is not a relational database. For more on CouchDB,
> join our mailing lists via http://couchdb.apache.org/, contribute code at
> https://github.com/apache/couchdb, or bring your questions to IRC in the
> #couchdb channel on freenode.
