Beta Release 2016-10-06


What's new in beta-201601006?


CockroachDB beta-20161006 is now available for download, and all installation instructions have been updated to point to the new release.

There aren't many user-visible changes in this week's release - an artifact of our recent stability efforts, which funneled user-visible changes to a secondary development branch. Our concerted stability effort is nearing its end, and we are preparing to include these features in next week's release.

Help Make CockroachDB Better

We’re scheduling 60-minute usability interviews next Thursday, Oct 13. Please complete this short questionnaire if you'd like to participate, and we will be in touch.

For the interviews, you will: 

  • Join our appointment remotely via Google Hangouts or GoToMeeting.
  • Allow us to record the audio session for internal use only.
  • Receive CockroachDB swag as a thank you from us.
