CouchDB update fixes data loss problem
The Apache CouchDB developers have released version 1.0.1 of the NoSQL document database which fixes the bug that caused version 1.0.0 to be vulnerable to data loss in its default configuration. The release notice details the affects of the bug, describes ways to mitigate the problem without upgrading and gives links to a repair tool for users who are suffering data loss. Although workarounds are given in the notice, the developers recommend upgrading to 1.0.1 as soon as possible.
The update also adds support for replication through HTTP / HTTP proxy servers, fixes some replication bugs when interoperating with older versions of CouchDB and adds the ability to audit deletes by showing fields saved when a record is deleted. The Apache licensed source code for CouchDB 1.0.1 is available to download from the project's web site.
