-
-Upgrade Notes
--------------
-
-You can upgrade your existing CouchDB 1.0.x installation to 1.3.0
-without any specific steps or migration. When you run CouchDB, the
-existing data and index files will be opened and used as normal.
-
-The first time you run a compaction routine on your database within 1.3.0,
-the data structure and indexes will be updated to the new version of the
-CouchDB database format that can only be read by CouchDB 1.3.0 and later.
-This step is not reversible. Once the data files have been updated and
-migrated to the new version the data files will no longer work with a
-CouchDB 1.0.x release.
-
-.. warning::
-   If you want to retain support for opening the data files in
-   CouchDB 1.0.x you must back up your data files before performing the
-   upgrade and compaction process.

-Upgrade Notes
--------------
-
-.. warning::
-
-   This version drops support for the database format that was introduced in
-   version 0.9.0. Compact your older databases (that have not been compacted
-   for a long time) before upgrading, or they will become inaccessible.
-
-Security changes
-^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
-
-The interface to the ``_users`` and ``_replicator`` databases have been
-changed so that non-administrator users can see less information:
-
-* In the ``_users`` database:
-
-  * User documents can now only be read by the respective users, as well as
-    administrators. Other users cannot read these documents.
-  * Views can only be defined and queried by administrator users.
-  * The ``_changes`` feed can only be queried by administrator users.
-
-* In the ``_replicator`` database:
-
-  * Documents now have a forced ``owner`` field that corresponds to the
-    authenticated user that created them.
-  * Non-owner users will not see confidential information like passwords or
-    OAuth tokens in replication documents; they can still see the other
-    contents of those documents. Administrators can see everything.
-  * Views can only be defined and queried by administrators.
-
-Database Compression
-^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
-
-The new optional (but enabled by default) compression of disk files requires
-an upgrade of the on-disk format (5 -> 6) which occurs on creation for new
-databases and views, and on compaction for existing files. This format is not
-supported in previous releases, so rollback would require replication to the
-previous CouchDB release or restoring from backup.
-
-Compression can be disabled by setting ``compression = none`` in your
-``local.ini`` ``[couchdb]`` section, but the on-disk format will still be
-upgraded.
-
-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 (:issue:`1424`).
-* Fixed --with-js-include and --with-js-lib options.
-* Added --with-js-lib-name option.
-
-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.
-
-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.
-
-OAuth
-^^^^^
-
-* Updated bundled erlang_oauth library to the latest version.
-
-1.1.x Branch
-============
-
-.. contents::
-   :depth: 1
-   :local:
-
-Version 1.1.1
--------------
-
-* Support SpiderMonkey 1.8.5
-* Add configurable maximum to the number of bytes returned by _log.
-* Allow CommonJS modules to be an empty string.
-* Bump minimum Erlang version to R13B02.

-   :depth: 1
-   :local:
-
-Version 0.8.1-incubating
-------------------------
-
-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.
-
-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.
-
-Futon
-^^^^^
-
-* The view selector dropdown should now work in Opera and Internet Explorer
-  even when it includes optgroups for design documents. (:issue:`81`)
-
-JavaScript View Server

-  SpiderMonkey 1.9.
-* Improve error handling for undefined values emitted by map functions.
-  (:issue:`83`)

-^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
-
-* 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. (:issue:`84`)
-* Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
-  (:issue:`55`)
-* CouchDB can now be bound to IPv6 addresses.
-* The HTTP `Server` header now contains the versions of CouchDB and Erlang.
-
-
-Version 0.8.0-incubating
-------------------------
-
-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.
-
-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).
-
-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. (:issue:`12`)
-* The database page now provides a `Compact` button to trigger database
-  compaction. (:issue:`38`)
-* Fixed portential double encoding of document IDs and other URI segments in
-  many instances. (:issue:`39`)
-* Improved display of attachments.
-* The JavaScript Shell has been removed due to unresolved licensing issues.
-
-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. (:issue:`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.
-
-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. (:issue:`3`)
-* Improved compliance of `Etag` handling with the HTTP specification.
-  (:issue:`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.

+  use to create new docs.
+* Upgrade CommonJS modules support to 1.1.1.
+* Fixed erlang filter funs and normalize filter fun API.

+
+0.8.x Branch
+============
+
+.. contents::
+   :depth: 1
+   :local:
+
+
+.. _release/0.8.1:
+
+Version 0.8.1-incubating
+------------------------
+
+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.
+
+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.
+
+Futon
+^^^^^
+
+* The view selector dropdown should now work in Opera and Internet Explorer
+  even when it includes optgroups for design documents. (:issue:`81`)
+
+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.
+  (:issue:`83`)
+
+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. (:issue:`84`)
+* Fix for connections not getting closed after rejecting a chunked request.
+  (:issue:`55`)
+* CouchDB can now be bound to IPv6 addresses.
+* The HTTP `Server` header now contains the versions of CouchDB and Erlang.
+
+
+.. _release/0.8.0:
+
+Version 0.8.0-incubating
+------------------------
+
+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.
+
+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).
+
+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. (:issue:`12`)
+* The database page now provides a `Compact` button to trigger database
+  compaction. (:issue:`38`)
+* Fixed portential double encoding of document IDs and other URI segments in
+  many instances. (:issue:`39`)
+* Improved display of attachments.
+* The JavaScript Shell has been removed due to unresolved licensing issues.
+
+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. (:issue:`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.
+
+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. (:issue:`3`)
+* Improved compliance of `Etag` handling with the HTTP specification.
+  (:issue:`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.
