Release: CouchDB 1.0 Finally Here

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 [1]. 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

Not to mention that with this release, CouchDB will be available on Windows OS. If you haven’t upgraded in a while, here is a list of new features. You should also check the getting ready guide.

CouchDB 1.0

The new version is not yet listed on the ☞ CouchDB project download page[2], but you can get the Mac OS X and source distributions from ☞ here [3].

And if you needed an additional reason to celebrate,, the company behind CouchDB, is offering free, no-fuss CouchDB hosting.

Congrats to the CouchDB team!

  1. There are also some CouchDB usecases we’ve gathered.  ()
  2. There are quite a few PR announcements out there though.  ()
  3. At the time this post was published I couldn’t find the Windows distribution, but I assume it will be available soon.   ()
