Native SSL support comes to CouchDB 1.1.0
The Apache CouchDB developers have announced CouchDB 1.1.0, now with native SSL support. This is the first stable release of CouchDB with SSL support. Other enhancements in the release include support for HTTP range requests for attachments, support for TCP_NODELAY, wildcards in vhost definitions and a more flexible URL rewriter. The release also features "multiple micro-optimizations" to improve performance when reading data. Futon, the administration front end, now supports the ability to change password, rather than requiring users to edit a file on the server system.
