  1. Currently Couchbase lite 2.0 is under beta, when we can expect the official release of Couchbase lite 2.0.

  2. Quick question – I notice that ‘regular java’ (i.e. non-Android) is not supported at this time. Will CB lite eventually support plain Java at some point, if so, roughly when, i.e. in 1 quarter, next year etc. Thanks. FYI great stuff. The query and search support are a big deal!

    @Sonny – thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated!

    We are actively considering adding support for other platforms but don’t have a committed plan at this time. I would like to learn more about your use case and specific needs – please message me directly if you are open to sharing those details.
