Latest commit b0420f9 Mar 10, 2013 @vmx vmx Fix CORS error with attachments
When attachments were returned (?attachments=true) while CORS was
enabled and used, an error occured. The reason for this error
were headers that were encoded as binaries instead of lists. String
operations on binaries throw errors.

Running the Testsuite
---------------------

Run the testsuite for couch.js and jquery.couch.js by browsing here:

    http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/spec/run.html

It should work in at least Firefox >= 3.6 with Private Browsing mode enabled.

Read more about JSpec here:

    https://github.com/liblime/jspec

When you change the specs, but your changes have no effect, manually reload
the changed spec file in the browser. When the spec that tests Erlang views
fails, make sure you have enabled Erlang views as described here:
   
       http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/EnableErlangViews
