Hi Dave,

Now I understand how cool it will be to have a .Net application capable of running HTML5 web
applications (couchapp) and in the background running CouchDB, no installation, no browser
needed. You are right about that It could a whole new way for deploying couchapp on windows
as a native windows forms applications.

Just this what you read on the thread. But the 1.0.2 binaries are really stable and I think
ready for release!
I was able to do pull replication from 0.10.2 to 1.0.2 full with attachments and it works
I did a test for the 4 Gb bug and it was okay. All of the core functionality (create, delete,
compact, attach) is working. I still have to do some more tests with replications and will
let you know about the results.
