Big news for fans of the open source NoSQL database CouchDB: The project has begun offering its 1.0 release, capping a half-decade of development work that’s seen it add features and boost performance while upping its appeal to enterprises and Linux distributions like Ubuntu.
But CouchDB can’t rest on its laurels just yet. Developer.com takes a look at what’s new and improved with the 1.0 release — which features enhancements like better multicore support — as it seeks to rival the big names in enterprise databases.
The Apache CouchDB open source NoSQL database has passed a major milestone this week with the official release of CouchDB 1.0. The debut comes after five years of development on the database, which includes features for application data synchronization for Web servers and desktops.
With the CouchDB 1.0 release, project developers have improved both stability and performance. The release also marks the stable debut of CouchDB for Windows users, expanding the open source database beyond its Linux roots.
