Apache CouchDB 1.0.0 has been released and is available for download:


This is a huge milestone for the CouchDB community, and we'd like to thank 
every single person who's helped us get this far. This project would be nothing 
without its community, and we are fortunate enough to be blessed with a very 
healthy one.

Changes in this release:

 * More efficient header commits.
 * Use O_APPEND to save lseeks.
 * Faster implementation of pread_iolist(). Further improves performance on
   concurrent reads.
 * Added authentication caching
 * Faster default view collation.
 * Added option to include update_seq in view responses.

This builds on the changes made in 0.11.1, also released today.

Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and indexed 
in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. CouchDB also offers incremental 
replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution.

CouchDB provides a RESTful JSON API than can be accessed from any environment 
that allows HTTP requests. There are myriad third-party client libraries that 
make this even easier from your programming language of choice. CouchDB’s built 
in Web administration console speaks directly to the database using HTTP 
requests issued from your browser.

CouchDB is written in Erlang, a robust functional programming language ideal 
for building concurrent distributed systems. Erlang allows for a flexible 
design that is easily scalable and readily extensible.

Relax and prosper,
