These release notes are based on the changelog.
- COUCHDB-1781: The official documentation has been overhauled. A lot of
content from other sources have been merged, and the index page
has been rebuilt to make the docs much more accessible.
- A new administration UI, codenamed Fauxton, has been included as an
experimental preview. It can be accessed at /_utils/fauxton/. There
are too many improvements here to list them all. We are looking for
feedback from the community on this preview release.
- COUCHDB-1888: Fixed an issue where admin users would be restricted by
the public_fields feature.

src/couch_plugin/README.md for details. We invite the community to
test and report any findings.

has been added. See Experimental Features for details. We invite the
community to test and report any findings.
