More CouchDb

Jan writes about the upcoming changes to CouchDb.

I'm really excited about these new changes and very happy to be rid of XML, which eliminates a large source of friction. With JSON and Javascript it's amazing how simple things are getting. For some more code examples, check out the new javascript based tests.

CouchDb, big changes coming

Jan and I have been doing a bunch of work converting CouchDb over to use JSON instead of XML and Javascript instead of a custom query language. Right now it's barely working but I already see huge payoffs in simplicity and ease of use. It's getting simpler under the covers as well.

I'll be writing about the changes soon. In the meantime you can go to Jan's talk at FrOSCon this sunday where he will be talking about CouchDb and the upcoming changes.
