Apache CouchDB 1.6.0 Released

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.
