Review Board 1.7.10 Release Notes

Release date: June 22, 2013

Security Updates

Fixed an XSS vulnerability where users could trigger script errors under certain conditions in auto-complete widgets.

There are no known vulnerabilities in the wild, but we recommend upgrading immediately.

Thanks to Craig Young at Tripwire for reporting this to us.

Web API Changes

  • Added n ?order-by=<fieldname> query parameter for comment resources, allowing ordering by fields such as line numbers (for diff comments).
  • Added a filename field to screenshot resources, which provides the base filename (without path) of the screenshot.
  • Added a review_url field to screenshot resources, which provides the URL to the screenshot review page.
  • Added a thumbnail_url field to screenshot comment resources, which provides the URL to the snippet of the screenshot being commented on.
  • Added a link_text field to file attachment comment resources, which shows the text for any link pointing to the file. This may differ depending on the comment.
  • Added a review_url field to file attachment comment resources, which provides the URL to the review page for the file.
  • Added a thumbnail_html field to file attachment comment resources, which provides HTML for rendering the thumbnail of the portion of the file being rendered, if any.
