Subject Re: Update to 1.2.1 on Windows > couch not available any more

Hi Alex,

Nothing screams out at me what's not working. If you are able to jump on

Upgrading should be pretty straightforwards but I am not sure what we are
missing here. I think it's time to add an upgrade section to the docs also.

A+
Dave
