Subject Point release for 1.x.x branch
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2016 09:33:51 GMT
Hi all,

Current stable release for couchdb is 1.6.1 is almost 2 years old (turns in
september). It supports up to erlang 17.0
<>. To build
it using erlang > 17.0, one must either patch the source of 1.6.1 (an
instance of which can be seen here
for example), or build 1.x.x from sources (1.x.x was just ensured to be
working well with 18.3 and 19.0, see this

Can we please have a stable 1.x.x release to simplify building couchdb
against new erlang?:

   - Here are all the changes that would go into release – 1.6.1...1.x.x
   - If I'm not mistaken, the release would have to be tagged as 1.7.0 (per

My motivation for asking this comes from trying to update another recipe on
homebrew, the one for erlang itself. There's an evidence
that updating erlang to 19.0 on OS X will break couchdb 1.6.1 installation
for all OS X users.

Having a new stable release for couchdb would allow to:

   - include updated release in homebrew couchdb recipe,
   - cleanup the couchdb recipe from an aforementioned patch,
   - un-block the 19.0 release of erlang for all OS X homebrew users.

Please, let me know if for some reason it's impossible to make a release,
and I will work on some short-term solution.
