Does Couchbase Lite 1.2.1 compact automatically?

#1

Hi,

http://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/mobile/1.2/develop/guides/couchbase-lite/native-api/database/index.html says that In Couchbase Lite 1.0, you have to explicitly initiate compaction; in the future it will happen automatically in the background.

Should this be interpreted as “After compacting for the first time in CBL 1.0, CBL will automatically compact in the background” or “In CBL versions after 1.0, CBL will automatically compact in the background”?

#2

It means “in future versions of CBL”.

The current status is:

  • SQLite-based databases must be manually compacted.
  • ForestDB-based databases automatically compact in the background.

Thank you for a quick answer again.
