Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 19:56:28 GMT
Under embargo and with the disclaimer that it's still a draft subject to
changes. Even if some edits are still being made, providing Serdar and Doug
from InfoWorld a draft by this evening will be helpful, since Jan briefed
Serdar this afternoon (ET).

Thanks,
Lynnette

This is not the final edit just yet. Andy is looking over it now.
Lynnette is planning to send out a few copies under embargo. But I
would give it the rest of the evening for people to add comments. Is
that still okay with you?

But there users will find the documentation about 1.6.1. And as I just
heard, we do not have any documentation for 2.0 yet. We should have a
little "how to guide" and we should include that link here - if we decide
to link to any docs at all.

Just wanted to mention that up front in case it matters.

>>>>>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.
