On upgrading from a 2.x release, all Couchbase Lite databases will be automatically re-indexed on initial database open.
Couchbase Lite now has an officially supported C API, which builds on the success of the well-received engineering labs C API for Couchbase Lite.
The C API now includes support for Enterprise-grade features like database encryption. This optimized implementation is ensured feature parity with our other Couchbase Lite platforms and is supported on a wide-range of mobile and desktop platforms — see: Supported Platfroms.
The ease of building language bindings on top of the C API means application developers can build for edge and embedded IoT devices using their preferred languages to harness the power of Couchbase Lite.

Couchbase Lite’s N1QL for Mobile query API vastly simplifies the integration of Couchbase Lite within hybrid/cross platform apps.
N1QL for Mobile is an implementation of the emerging SQL-for-JSON query language specification (SQL++). It provides native, hybrid and cross-platform mobile app developers with a consistent, convenient and flexible interface to query JSON documents within the embedded database using a SQL-based syntax. This means developers can reuse queries across platforms, reducing development, testing and maintenance costs.

Items (features and-or functionality) are marked as deprecated when a more current, and usually enhanced, alternative is available.
Whilst the deprecated item will remain usable, it is no longer supported, and will be removed in a future release — see also: Removed in this Release You should plan to move to an alternative, supported, solution as soon as practical.
