Subject Re: View cache invalidation

Hi Julien,

This is a bug in your view, rather than a problem with CouchDB. A view
is built by reading the _changes feed for the database, and only
updates to documents will cause their corresponding rows in the view
to be recalculated. This is all by design.

If you give more details, we can help you fix your view. Someone has
already noted the general shape of the solution, emitting the
timestamp in the key and selecting slices with startkey/endkey.
