Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 1.6.0 released
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2014 17:23:41 GMT
Dear Community,

Apache CouchDB 1.6.0 has been released and is available for download.

CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the web. Store your
data with JSON documents. Access your documents with your web browser,
via HTTP. Query, combine, and transform your documents with
JavaScript. CouchDB works well with modern web and mobile apps. You
can even serve web apps directly out of CouchDB. And you can
distribute your data, or your apps, efficiently using CouchDB’s
incremental replication. CouchDB supports master-master setups with
automatic conflict detection.

Pre-built packages for Windows and OS X are available.

CouchDB 1.6.0 is a feature release, and was originally published on 2014-06-10.

These release notes are based on the changelog.

Upgrade Notes

The Proxy Authentication handler was renamed to
proxy_authentication_handler to follow the *_authentication_handler
form of all other handlers. The old proxy_authentification_handler
name is marked as deprecated and will be removed in future releases.
It’s strongly recommended to update the httpd/authentication_handlers
option with the new value if you have this handler configured.

including switching the code editor from CodeMirror to Ace as well as

rate-limiting the amount of UUIDs that can be requested from the
/_uuids handler in a single request (CVE 2014-2668).
