Even if one of the oldest NoSQL databases around, CouchDB is releasing the 1.0 version just now. But don’t let the version fool you: CouchDB has been run in production for quite a while as certified by some of the usages we’ve covered
. In this regard, CouchDB story is somehow similar to that of Neo4j 1.0 release.
While in feature freeze after the previous version, CouchDB 0.11.0, CouchDB 1.0 is bringing in a couple of goodies:
- improved performance of writes for large documents
- an authentification system
- advanced replication options
And if you needed an additional reason to celebrate, Couch.io, the company behind CouchDB, is offering free, no-fuss CouchDB hosting.
Congrats to the CouchDB team!
