Voting is underway for Apache CouchDB 2.1.0-Release Candidate 1 (RC1).

Earlier this week Joan Touzet initiated the voting process to release Apache CouchDB 2.1.0-RC1.

The CouchDB community is highly encouraged to download and test these release artefacts so that any critical issues can be resolved before the release is made. Everyone is free to vote on this release, so please explore!

You can test the following release artefacts here:

Please follow the test procedure here:

You can also review the changes as noted in the documentation here.

Keep in mind that “RC1” is an annotation. If the vote passes, these artefacts will be released as Apache CouchDB 2.1.0.

Per the terms of the CouchDB bylaws, a lazy majority is required for approval, with binding votes counting only from PMC members. The vote will remain open for 72 hours, until Thursday, 2017-08-03 @ 05:00.
