RBTools 0.7.5 Release Notes¶
Release date: October 26, 2015
Users can now specify the search path for
$RBTOOLS_CONFIG_PATHenvironment variable now controls the search path. It’s a list of paths separated by the system’s native path separator (
':'on Linux/MacOS X,
';'on Windows). These paths are searched prior to any default paths.
This is handy for forcing the
.reviewboardrcfile in your home directory to be searched first.
Patch by Nils Philippsen.
Fixed displaying error output containing non-ASCII characters. (Bug #3907)
On Windows, home directory detection now prefers the
%HOME%environment variable to
Prior to this release,
%HOME%was always ignored in favor of
%APPDATA%, which caused problems in certain setups.
Patch by Vadim Zeitlin.
The help output no longer mistakenly shows that
--is required before query arguments.
Git version checking is no longer performed unless Git is installed, preventing a harmless but visible error message for systems without Git.
Fixed path separator differences when posting a change against Mercurial on Windows. (Bug #3894)
Patch by Ali Kamali.
Fixed a regression with looking for empty files.
When looking for empty files in a change (which must be handled specially), RBTools would get a null result, which wasn’t being handled correctly.
Fixed posting submitted Perforce changes.
Posting submitted changes for review regressed in 0.7.x. They can now be posted again.
Fixed posting Perforce paths that are not included in the client view. (Bug #3864)
It’s once again possible to post a committed revision for review when the commit contains files not in the client view.
Team Foundation Server¶
Fixed a number of issues with diff generation on TFS.
The method previously used to generate diffs didn’t deal with a lot of cases that could come up when using different editors or platforms, such as files that don’t end with a newline or files that start with a byte-order marker.
RBTools now requires GNU diff for TFS diff generation.
