= Supported Releases =

== 1.5.0 ==

November 6th, 2013

[[http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/couchdb/source/1.5.0/apache-couchdb-1.5.0.tar.gz|apache-couchdb-1.5.0.tar.gz]] [ [[http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/source/1.5.0/apache-couchdb-1.5.0.tar.gz.asc|OpenPGP]] ] [ [[http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/source/1.5.0/apache-couchdb-1.5.0.tar.gz.md5|MD5]] ] [ [[http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/source/1.5.0/apache-couchdb-1.5.0.tar.gz.sha|SHA]] ]

= Release Support Policy =

CouchDB uses [[http://semver.org/|semantic versioning]], so, in a nutshell:

 * X.Y.Z equates to major version, minor version, and patch version.
 * The major version will be incremented every time we make backwards incompatible changes.
 * The minor version will be incremented every time we add backwards compatible features.
 * The patch version will be incremented every time we add backwards compatible fixes.

We will support each major version for 12 months. So, if 1.0.0 was released on 2010-01-01, then we would add features and fixes to it until 2011-01-01. After 12 months have passed, we may continue to release fixes for critical security issues, but these will be in the form of actual patches.

Note that the upgrade path for minor versions is to update the latest minor version. We will not continue to release patch versions for an old minor version. That is, 1.1.0 immediately supersedes 1.0.x, and no more fixes will be made on the 1.0.x line. Similarly, 1.2.0 immediately supersedes 1.1.x.

= Archived Releases =

Old Apache CouchDB releases can be found in the [[http://archive.apache.org/dist/couchdb/|Apache CouchDB archive]].

Even older Apache Incubator releases of CouchDB can be found in the [[http://archive.apache.org/dist/incubator/couchdb/|Apache Incubator archive of CouchDB]].

These are provided for reference purposes only. It is recommended you use a current release of CouchDB.

= Verifying Releases =

When downloading from a mirror please check the [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing#md5|MD5]] and [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing#sha-checksum|SHA]] checksums as well as verifying the [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing#openpgp|OpenPGP]] compatible signature available from the main Apache site. The [[http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/KEYS|KEYS]] file contains the public keys used for signing release. It is recommended that a [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing#web-of-trust|web of trust]] is used to confirm the identity of these keys.

You can check the OpenPGP signature with:

{{{
gpg --verify apache-couchdb-*.tar.gz.asc
}}}

You can check the MD5 checksum with:

{{{
md5sum --check apache-couchdb-*.tar.gz.md5
}}}

You can check the SHA checksum with:

{{{
sha1sum --check apache-couchdb-*.tar.gz.sha
}}}

The official documentation has moved to http://docs.couchdb.org — The transition is not 100% complete, but http://docs.couchdb.org should be seen as having the latest info. In some cases, the wiki still has some more or older info on certain topics inside CouchDB.

You need to be added to the ContributorsGroup to edit the wiki. But don't worry! Just email any Mailing List or grab us on IRC and let us know your user name.
