And of course I meant "CouchDB 2.0 beta release" in my note below, and not
"Apache 2.0."

Sorry about that typo! --Mike

Subject:	Draft for review: Apache 2.0 beta press release

Hello, community-- After our google hangout with Jan, Alexander, and others
on Monday, my colleague Lynnette and I drafted a press release for your

It's open to all for comments via

If you would like edit access, please let me know. (I already granted edit
access to Jan, Noah, and others who I suspect might be interested, but my
apologies in advance if I left you off.)

The goal is to send a draft over to Sally Khudairi by Friday morning U.S.
Eastern, so she has time to review before Jan, Joan, and others speak about
the Apache 2.0 beta release at ApacheCon Europe on 17 November.

Thanks very much for your edits/comments! --Mike

  Apache CouchDB™ Adds Database Clustering with 2.0 Beta Release of NoSQL

 Horizontal scalability improves data replication and sync at large scale
                        for JSON document database

BUDAPEST — NOVEMBER 17, 2014 — The Apache CouchDB™ project today announced
a beta release of CouchDB 2.0 at the ApacheCon Europe conference. The
software release brings improved clustering technology to the open source
NoSQL database. Now, CouchDB can more easily move data between different
CouchDB instances and continuously synchronize changes to that data across
CouchDB services running on commodity servers, within Web browsers, and
directly on mobile devices.

CouchDB is an operational data store designed to ensure the flow of data
between an application and its database remains uninterrupted and highly
performant. The clustering improvements introduced in the beta version of
CouchDB 2.0 extend the database’s performance properties around data
durability and high availability, adding Dynamo distributed system-design
principles to CouchDB horizontal scaling technology.

“The beta release of CouchDB 2.0 delivers on our vision of making Apache
CouchDB the standard database for data movement,” said Jan Lehnardt, vice
president of Apache CouchDB at the Apache Software Foundation. “Data access
is like any other utility. Applications must excel at keeping data flowing
to and from users, across data centers, and between mobile devices and
central repositories. The beta release is a milestone for the Apache
CouchDB community, and it’s already raising more interest in the project.”

CouchDB 2.0 represents major contributions to the Apache project. All the
clustering features of BigCouch, an open source variant of CouchDB, have
now been folded back into Apache CouchDB. The community has also completed
development of a new Web dashboard called Fauxton, with streamlined admin
tools, rich code editors, and a UI for managing database replication. The
beta release of CouchDB 2.0 containing these features is available now at
<link>. The community encourages feedback for incorporation into the
generally available release, which is expected in early 2015.

At ApacheCon Europe, the CouchDB community also announced plans for
upcoming new features. The first new feature is a declarative querying
system, code for which currently resides in an open source repository. The
community also announced its intention to evaluate soon-to-be-open-sourced
code that would advance CouchDB indexing capabilities. These potential new
features would add integrated full-text indexing for search based on Apache
Lucene™, extend CouchDB view indexing to clustered environments, and
automatically compact indexes with improved logic.

About Apache CouchDB™
CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the Web and works well with
modern Web and mobile applications. Store database records as JSON
documents. Access documents and query indexes via HTTP. Index, combine, and
transform JSON documents with JavaScript. Distribute data efficiently using
CouchDB’s incremental replication and synchronization technology. CouchDB
supports master-master setups (a.k.a. “masterless replica architectures”)
with automatic conflict detection. CouchDB works well with modern Web and
mobile applications. It is not a relational database. For more on CouchDB,
