CouchDB 1.6.0 is a feature release, and was originally published on 2014-06-10.
These release notes are based on the changelog.
Authentication handler was renamed to proxy_authentication_handler to follow the
*_authentication_handler form of all other handlers. The old proxy_authentification_handler
name is marked as deprecated and will be removed in future releases. It’s strongly recommended
to update the httpd/authentication_handlers
option with the new value if you have this handler configured.
