02 March 2020   360

A distributed document-oriented database Apache CouchDB 3.0, belonging to the class of NoSQL-systems, was released. The source code for the project is distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.

Some changes: 

  •   Default installations are now secure and locked down.
  •   Many large and small performance improvements
  •   Automatic view index warmer
  •   Smarter Compaction Daemon
  •   Smarter I/O Queue
  •   Much improved installers for Windows
  •   macOS binaries are now Notarized for full future Catalina support

CouchDB stores data in an ordered list format and allows partial replication of data between several databases in the "master-master" mode with the simultaneous detection and resolution of conflict situations. Each server stores its own local data set, synchronized with other servers, which can be switched offline and periodically replicate changes. In particular, this feature makes CouchDB an attractive solution for organizing program settings synchronization between different computers. CouchDB-based solutions have been deployed by companies such as BBC, Apple, and CERN.
