-Version 1.2.2
--------------
-
-HTTP Interface:
-
- * Reset rewrite counter on new request, avoiding unnecessary request failures
-   due to bogus rewrite limit reports.
-
-Build System:
-
- * Fixed issue in couchdb script where stopped status returns before process
-   exits.
-
-Version 1.2.1
--------------
-
-Security:
-
- * Fixed CVE-2012-5641: Apache CouchDB Information disclosure via unescaped
-   backslashes in URLs on Windows
- * Fixed CVE-2012-5649: Apache CouchDB JSONP arbitrary code execution with Adobe
-   Flash
- * Fixed CVE-2012-5650: Apache CouchDB DOM based Cross-Site Scripting via Futon
-   UI
-
-HTTP Interface:
-
- * No longer rewrites the X-CouchDB-Requested-Path during recursive
-   calls to the rewriter.
- * Limit recursion depth in the URL rewriter. Defaults to a maximum
-   of 100 invocations but is configurable.

-View System:
-
- * Change use of signals to avoid broken view groups.
-
-Version 1.2.0
--------------
-
-Authentication:
-
- * Fix use of OAuth with VHosts and URL rewriting.
- * OAuth secrets can now be stored in the users system database
-   as an alternative to key value pairs in the .ini configuration.
-   By default this is disabled (secrets are stored in the .ini)
-   but can be enabled via the .ini configuration key `use_users_db`
-   in the `couch_httpd_oauth` section.
- * Documents in the _users database are no longer publicly
-   readable.
- * Confidential information in the _replication database is no
-   longer publicly readable.
- * Password hashes are now calculated by CouchDB. Clients are no
-   longer required to do this manually.
- * Cookies used for authentication can be made persistent by enabling
-   the .ini configuration key `allow_persistent_cookies' in the
-   `couch_httpd_auth` section.
-
-Build System:
-
- * cURL is no longer required to build CouchDB as it is only
-   used by the command line JS test runner. If cURL is available
-   when building CouchJS you can enable the HTTP bindings by
-   passing -H on the command line.
- * Temporarily made `make check` pass with R15B. A more thorough
-   fix is in the works (COUCHDB-1424).
- * Fixed --with-js-include and --with-js-lib options.
- * Added --with-js-lib-name option.
-
-HTTP Interface:
-
- * Added a native JSON parser.
- * The _active_tasks API now offers more granular fields. Each
-   task type is now able to expose different properties.
- * Added built-in changes feed filter `_view`.
- * Fixes to the `_changes` feed heartbeat option which caused
-   heartbeats to be missed when used with a filter. This caused
-   timeouts of continuous pull replications with a filter.
- * Properly restart the SSL socket on configuration changes.
-
-Replicator:
-
- * A new replicator implementation. It offers more performance and
-   configuration options.
- * Passing non-string values to query_params is now a 400 bad
-   request. This is to reduce the surprise that all parameters
-   are converted to strings internally.
- * Added optional field `since_seq` to replication objects/documents.
-   It allows to bootstrap a replication from a specific source sequence
-   number.
- * Simpler replication cancellation. In addition to the current method,
-   replications can now be canceled by specifying the replication ID
-   instead of the original replication object/document.
-
-Storage System:
-
- * Added optional database and view index file compression (using Google's
-   snappy or zlib's deflate). This feature is enabled by default, but it
-   can be disabled by adapting local.ini accordingly. The on-disk format
-   is upgraded on compaction and new DB/view creation to support this.
- * Several performance improvements, most notably regarding database writes
-   and view indexing.
- * Computation of the size of the latest MVCC snapshot data and all its
-   supporting metadata, both for database and view index files. This
-   information is exposed as the `data_size` attribute in the database and
-   view group information URIs.
- * The size of the buffers used for database and view compaction is now
-   configurable.
- * Added support for automatic database and view compaction. This feature
-   is disabled by default, but it can be enabled via the .ini configuration.
- * Performance improvements for the built-in changes feed filters `_doc_ids`
-   and `_design'.
-
-View Server:
-
- * Add CoffeeScript (http://coffeescript.org/) as a first class view server
-   language.
- * Fixed old index file descriptor leaks after a view cleanup.
- * The requested_path property keeps the pre-rewrite path even when no VHost
-   configuration is matched.
- * Fixed incorrect reduce query results when using pagination parameters.
- * Made icu_driver work with Erlang R15B and later.
- * Avoid invalidating view indexes when running out of file descriptors
-   (COUCHDB-1445).
-
-OAuth:
-
- * Updated bundled erlang_oauth library to the latest version.
-
-Futon:
-
- * The `Status` screen (active tasks) now displays two new task status
-   fields: `Started on` and `Updated on`.
- * Futon remembers view code every time it is saved, allowing to save an
-   edit that amounts to a revert.
-
-Log System:
-
- * Log correct stacktrace in all cases.
- * Improvements to log messages for file-related errors.
-
-Version 1.1.2

-   strings.
- * Same goes for editing of JSON string values. When a change to a field value is
-   submitted, and the value is not valid JSON it is assumed to be a string. This
-   improves editing of multi-line strings a lot.
- * Hitting tab in textareas no longer moves focus to the next form field, but simply

-------------------------
-
-Database Core:
-
- * Fix for replication problems where the write queues can get backed up if the
-   writes aren't happening fast enough to keep up with the reads. For a large
-   replication, this can exhaust memory and crash, or slow down the machine
-   dramatically. The fix keeps only one document in the write queue at a time.
- * Fix for databases sometimes incorrectly reporting that they contain 0
-   documents after compaction.
- * CouchDB now uses ibrowse instead of inets for its internal HTTP client
-   implementation. This means better replication stability.
-
-HTTP Interface:
-
- * Fix for chunked responses where chunks were always being split into multiple
-   TCP packets, which caused problems with the test suite under Safari, and in
-   some other cases.
- * Fix for an invalid JSON response body being returned for some kinds of
-   views. (COUCHDB-84)
- * Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
-   (COUCHDB-55)
- * CouchDB can now be bound to IPv6 addresses.
- * The HTTP `Server` header now contains the versions of CouchDB and Erlang.
-
-JavaScript View Server:
-
- * Sealing of documents has been disabled due to an incompatibility with
-   SpiderMonkey 1.9.
- * Improve error handling for undefined values emitted by map functions.
-   (COUCHDB-83)
-
-Build and System Integration:
-
- * The `couchdb` script no longer uses `awk` for configuration checks as this
-   was causing portability problems.
- * Updated `sudo` example in `README` to use the `-i` option, this fixes
-   problems when invoking from a directory the `couchdb` user cannot access.
-
-Futon:
-
- * The view selector dropdown should now work in Opera and Internet Explorer
-   even when it includes optgroups for design documents. (COUCHDB-81)
-
-Version 0.8.0-incubating
-------------------------
-
-Database Core:
-
- * The view engine has been completely decoupled from the storage engine. Index
-   data is now stored in separate files, and the format of the main database
-   file has changed.
- * Databases can now be compacted to reclaim space used for deleted documents
-   and old document revisions.
- * Support for incremental map/reduce views has been added.
- * To support map/reduce, the structure of design documents has changed. View
-   values are now JSON objects containing at least a `map` member, and
-   optionally a `reduce` member.
- * View servers are now identified by name (for example `javascript`) instead of
-   by media type.
- * Automatically generated document IDs are now based on proper UUID generation
-   using the crypto module.
- * The field `content-type` in the JSON representation of attachments has been
-   renamed to `content_type` (underscore).
-
-HTTP Interface:
-
- * CouchDB now uses MochiWeb instead of inets for the HTTP server
-   implementation. Among other things, this means that the extra configuration
-   files needed for inets (such as `couch_httpd.conf`) are no longer used.
- * The HTTP interface now completely supports the `HEAD` method. (COUCHDB-3)
- * Improved compliance of `Etag` handling with the HTTP specification.
-   (COUCHDB-13)
- * Etags are no longer included in responses to document `GET` requests that
-   include query string parameters causing the JSON response to change without
-   the revision or the URI having changed.
- * The bulk document update API has changed slightly on both the request and the
-   response side. In addition, bulk updates are now atomic.
- * CouchDB now uses `TCP_NODELAY` to fix performance problems with persistent
-   connections on some platforms due to nagling.
- * Including a `?descending=false` query string parameter in requests to views
-   no longer raises an error.
- * Requests to unknown top-level reserved URLs (anything with a leading
-   underscore) now return a `unknown_private_path` error instead of the
-   confusing `illegal_database_name`.
- * The Temporary view handling now expects a JSON request body, where the JSON
-   is an object with at least a `map` member, and optional `reduce` and
-   `language` members.
- * Temporary views no longer determine the view server based on the Content-Type
-   header of the `POST` request, but rather by looking for a `language` member
-   in the JSON body of the request.
- * The status code of responses to `DELETE` requests is now 200 to reflect that
-   that the deletion is performed synchronously.
-
-JavaScript View Server:
-
- * SpiderMonkey is no longer included with CouchDB, but rather treated as a
-   normal external dependency. A simple C program (`_couchjs`) is provided that
-   links against an existing SpiderMonkey installation and uses the interpreter
-   embedding API.
- * View functions using the default JavaScript view server can now do logging
-   using the global `log(message)` function. Log messages are directed into the
-   CouchDB log at `INFO` level. (COUCHDB-59)
- * The global `map(key, value)` function made available to view code has been
-   renamed to `emit(key, value)`.
- * Fixed handling of exceptions raised by view functions.
-
-Build and System Integration:
-
- * CouchDB can automatically respawn following a server crash.
- * Database server no longer refuses to start with a stale PID file.
- * System logrotate configuration provided.
- * Improved handling of ICU shared libraries.
- * The `couchdb` script now automatically enables SMP support in Erlang.
- * The `couchdb` and `couchjs` scripts have been improved for portability.
- * The build and system integration have been improved for portability.
-
-Futon:
-
- * When adding a field to a document, Futon now just adds a field with an
-   autogenerated name instead of prompting for the name with a dialog. The name
-   is automatically put into edit mode so that it can be changed immediately.
- * Fields are now sorted alphabetically by name when a document is displayed.
- * Futon can be used to create and update permanent views.
- * The maximum number of rows to display per page on the database page can now
-   be adjusted.
- * Futon now uses the XMLHTTPRequest API asynchronously to communicate with the
-   CouchDB HTTP server, so that most operations no longer block the browser.
- * View results sorting can now be switched between ascending and descending by
-   clicking on the `Key` column header.
- * Fixed a bug where documents that contained a `@` character could not be
-   viewed. (COUCHDB-12)
- * The database page now provides a `Compact` button to trigger database
-   compaction. (COUCHDB-38)
- * Fixed portential double encoding of document IDs and other URI segments in
-   many instances. (COUCHDB-39)
- * Improved display of attachments.
- * The JavaScript Shell has been removed due to unresolved licensing issues.
