Hi is ipv6 only now supported or still only legacy ip?

I can’t connect cbserver 5.0beta with java client v2.2.3, which works well with cbserver 3.5.

Hi can you please create a new question as this is an announcement


Sorry for that!
I create a new topic in category Java SDK.

When is the couchbase 5.0 release date scheduled for? (the non-beta version)

Answered in the other topic, but see the blog on the new authentication methods or the beta docs. Note older clients can work as well, you just need to configure it.
