Supported Releases

Please visit https://couchdb.apache.org/ for the currently available and supported releases.

Apache release policy states: "Each project's distribution directory SHOULD contain the latest release in each branch that is currently under development. When development ceases on a version branch, releases of that branch SHOULD be removed."

Release Support Policy

TL;DR: If you don't see the release in the main CouchDB distribution directory, it is no longer supported.

As of 2019, CouchDB supports the latest version of CouchDB in the 2.x line. Prior 2.x versions, as well as the 1.x line, have been deprecated due to security issues.

When a security-related release occurs, affected versions are immediately deprecated and no longer supported by the CouchDB team. In rare occasions, older version branches will be maintained with security patches.

Apache release policy states: "Each project's distribution directory SHOULD contain the latest release in each branch that is currently under development. When development ceases on a version branch, releases of that branch SHOULD be removed."

Archived Releases

Old Apache CouchDB releases can be found in the Apache CouchDB archive.  

Even older Apache Incubator releases of CouchDB can be found in the 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 MD5 and SHA checksums as well as verifying the OpenPGP compatible signature available from the main Apache site. The KEYS file contains the public keys used for signing release. It is recommended that a web of trust is used to confirm the identity of these keys.  

The Apache Software Foundation provides this page to assist you in verifying a CouchDB release.
