CouchDB Version 1.5 Now Available

We have upgraded to CouchDB version 1.5. During the process all your existing databases were migrated. For the first time we also added GeoCouch. You can now start building geo apps backed by CouchDB using GeoJSON and bounding-box searches.

The new CouchDB version features an adapted futon with autologin when called from the dashboard, full online documentation and an early version of fauxton, the next generation of CouchDB's WebGUI.

With the upgrade we have also changed the external URL to the new dedicated subdomain https://couchdb.cloudno.de.

Remember that Fauxton is still experimental. Main features like viewing secondary indexes don't work yet in a shared environment.
