Hello,

This is the first beta release of CouchDB, so well done everyone to  
who made that possible!

Changes in this release:

	• Added modular configuration file directories.
	• Miscellaneous improvements to build, system integration, and  
portability.

This release contains backwards incompatible changes:

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,

Noah
