Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 1.0.1 has been released
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 21:09:06 GMT
Hello,

Apache CouchDB 1.0.1 has been released and is available for download:

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

The 1.0.0 release has a data-loss bug in its default configuration.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING 1.0.0, PLEASE UPGRADE TO 1.0.1 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

See the release notice for more information:

	http://couchdb.apache.org/notice/1.0.1.html

Changes in this release:

  * Fix data corruption bug COUCHDB-844. Please see
    http://couchdb.apache.org/notice/1.0.1.html for details.
  * Added support for replication via an HTTP/HTTP proxy.
  * Fixed various replicator bugs for interop with older CouchDB versions.
  * Show fields saved along with _deleted=true. Allows for auditing of deletes.
  * Enable basic-auth popup when required to access the server, to prevent
    people from getting locked out.
  * User interface element for querying stale (cached) views.

Apache 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,
