858 Database Core:
859
860 * Fix for replication problems where the write queues can get backed up if the
861 writes aren't happening fast enough to keep up with the reads. For a large
862 replication, this can exhaust memory and crash, or slow down the machine
863 dramatically. The fix keeps only one document in the write queue at a time.
864 * Fix for databases sometimes incorrectly reporting that they contain 0
865 documents after compaction.

866 * CouchDB now uses ibrowse instead of inets for its internal HTTP client
867 implementation. This means better replication stability.

872 TCP packets, which caused problems with the test suite under Safari, and in
873 some other cases.
874 * Fix for an invalid JSON response body being returned for some kinds of
875 views. (COUCHDB-84)
876 * Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
