We’re super excited to announce that Couchbase Server 4.5 Beta has been released! This is a milestone beta release that comes with many awesome improvements in indexing, query and resource efficiency. With 4.5 Beta, we have shipped many exciting features including Integrated Query Editor, Memory-Optimized Indexes, Sub-Document API, Read your own writes, Circular reuse, Role Based Access Control, and much more.
Couchbase 4.5 also includes more platform coverage than before. We’ve introduced Debian 8 builds and this adds to the existing wide list of platforms we already run on (Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, SuSE, Red Hat, Debian and even Oracle Linux).
The downloads are at the usual place along with the release notes. You can read more about the beta release here and you’ll also find a good intro in Don Pinto’s blog post. The best way to give us feedback is to download the bits, look over the docs and post any feedback here or in our issue tracker. If you’re a docker fan, check out how to dockerize Couchbase and spin-up Couchbase 4.5 beta from Docker Hub.
We look forward to your feedback!
