Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 1.4.0 released
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 19:00:12 GMT
Dear community,

Apache CouchDB 1.4.0 has been released and is available for download.

CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the web. Store your
data with JSON documents. Access your documents with your web browser,
via HTTP. Query, combine, and transform your documents with
JavaScript. CouchDB works well with modern web and mobile apps. You
can even serve web apps directly out of CouchDB. And you can
distribute your data, or your apps, efficiently using CouchDB’s
incremental replication. CouchDB supports master-master setups with
automatic conflict detection.

Grab your copy here:

Pre-built packages for Windows and OS X are available.

CouchDB 1.4.0 is a feature release, and was originally published on 2013-09-03.

These release notes are based on the changelog.
