Yes, indeed! That is exactly what I want.

2.0.0 is still the latest release.

CouchDB committers got together very recently (see dev@ thread) to discuss 
roadmap (3.0 and beyond) but also discussed minor release. The release 
engineering team at Cloudant are going to provide some assistance to improve 
CouchDB's release processes (automation, quality, etc), so we should see a 
2.1.0 as an early part of that effort.

Clustered purge is actually quite hard but it is in development so keep an 
eye on the dev@ mailing list. Even when it lands, I think you'll be more 
interested in the "hard" delete feature we discussed at length at the 
aforementioned couchdb summit. In brief, it means that deleting a document 
in CouchDB eventually leads to full disk space reclamation. There's a 
careful operation to perform to know when this is safe to do (we need all 
indexes and replications to have "seen" the delete) and another careful 
operation to actually remove all traces (we'll leverage the clustered purge 
work for that).

Hope that helps,
