Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 0.8.1-incubating has been released
Date Sun, 17 Aug 2008 15:57:20 GMT
Hello,

Apache CouchDB 0.8.1-incubating has been released.

This is the second release under the patronage of the ASF Incubator.

This release is available for immediate download:

  http://incubator.apache.org/couchdb/downloads.html

Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free
document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API. Among other
features, it provides robust, incremental replication with bi-directional
conflict detection and resolution, and is queryable and indexable using a
table-oriented view engine with JavaScript acting as the default view definition
language.

CouchDB is written in Erlang, but can be easily accessed from any environment
that provides means to make HTTP requests. There are a multitude of third-party
client libraries that make this even easier for a variety of programming
languages and environments.

Version 0.8.1-incubating
------------------------

 * Various bug fixes for replication, compaction, the HTTP interface and the
   Javascript View Server.

Apache CouchDB is alpha software and still under heavy development. Please be
aware that important areas such as the public API or internal database format
may see backwards incompatible changes between versions.

Apache CouchDB is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is required
of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the
infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a
manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is
not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it
does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

Relax and prosper,

--
