Briefly, thanks to everyone in the community for the feedback on the Beta. With your help, we identified and squashed a number of issues and every user of Couchbase is better off for it.
This release brings together a number of features you’ve all been waiting for. Foremost is the new N1QL Query Language, supported with new Global Secondary Indexing and the Multi-Dimensional Scaling approach to architecture with this distributed database. All of the SDKs have shipped preview functionality to enable developers to start using these in apps for Java, .NET, Node.js and others. In fact, the Go SDK is arriving at nearly the same time.
That’s not all though, this is the first deployment of ForestDB on Couchbase Server, we have improved security features, more Cross Datacenter (XDCR) features and many other fixes.
While we work through all of the final checks with this RC, please give it a shot yourself and post here to the forums or to the issue tracker with any feedback.
