Developer Preview: RethinkDB now available for Windows
We’re pleased to announce today that RethinkDB is now available for Windows. You can download a Developer Preview of our Windows build, which runs natively on Microsoft’s operating system.
Support for Windows is one of the features most frequently requested by RethinkDB users. We launched an ambitious engineering project to port RethinkDB to Windows–an undertaking that required a year of intensive development, touching nearly every part of the database.
To try today’s Developer Preview, simply download RethinkDB as an executable and run it on a Windows machine. We’re making the preview available today so that our users can start exploring RethinkDB on Windows and help us test it in the real world. You shouldn’t trust it with your data or use it in production environments yet. It’s also not fully optimized, so you might not get the same performance that you would from a stable release.
