musings and one liners

CouchDB 1.0

The folks behind Object DB CouchDB released version 1.0, marking an important milestone for the still new DB.

  • Speed — writes are 300% faster for large documents, compared to the previous release;
  • Microsoft Windows support;
  • Authentication system — write CouchApps without having to create a user model;
  • Replicator options — flexibility to use replication to build custom systems.

I like that CouchIO, the commercial arm behind CouchDB, is offering free hosting, so everybody can try it out, no questions asked.

MyNoSQL also has some coverage.
