2edbabd @cmlenz Update NEWS and CHANGES for 0.8.1 release.

822 Database Core:
823
824 * Fix for replication problems where the write queues can get backed up if the
825 writes aren't happening fast enough to keep up with the reads. For a large
826 replication, this can exhaust memory and crash, or slow down the machine
827 dramatically. The fix keeps only one document in the write queue at a time.
828 * Fix for databases sometimes incorrectly reporting that they contain 0
829 documents after compaction.

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

833 HTTP Interface:
834
835 * Fix for chunked responses where chunks were always being split into multiple
836 TCP packets, which caused problems with the test suite under Safari, and in
837 some other cases.
838 * Fix for an invalid JSON response body being returned for some kinds of
839 views. (COUCHDB-84)
840 * Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
841 (COUCHDB-55)
842 * CouchDB can now be bound to IPv6 addresses.
