MySQL Gets Another Push Back in the Form of Apache CouchDB

Monday Apr 5th 2010 by DatabaseJournal.com Staff

The MySQL database has taken its fair share of push back and now from Apache’s CouchDB.

Apache’s CouchDB is not offering version 0.11 as it pushes forward towards a 1.0 release. CouchDB is yet another NoSQL database that is taking advantage of the uncertainty of MySQL and trying to get ahead of the curve—hitting a major milestone this week with their 0.11 release. This 0.11 release is said to be the first release that hasn’t been noted as being alpha or beta and offers new features and performance improvements. Said Damien Katz, creator of CouchDB:

"The 0.11 release is the first release where we're going into feature freeze, so this is the release where we'll be interface stable for 1.0, which will follow shortly."
