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

839 * Fix for an invalid JSON response body being returned for some kinds of
840 views. (COUCHDB-84)
841 * Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
