Upgrade to Apache CouchDB 1.2.0

By Jason on Apr 07, 2012


Just now, the Apache CouchDB project released version 1.2.0.

I am happy to announce that all Iris Couch accounts are now running this release. You needn’t do anything, the upgrade is automatic. Just relax on the Couch!

Notable improvements:

  • Persistent cookies—users remain logged in through a browser restart
  • More secure _users database
  • Better, faster replication
  • Reduced (and faster) disk usage

We also upgraded to the new Ocasta Labs Facebook Authentication plugin. It is now easy and relaxing to build a Couch app letting users log in via Facebook.
