RBTools 0.7.4 Release Notes

Release date: June 11, 2015

Compatibility Notes

  • Team Foundation Server support does not yet work with Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 or higher.

    In Visual Studio 2013 Update 4, the command line tool we used, tf.cmd, has been rewritten, and many of the features we depended on were dropped.

    For the moment, you will need to stick with Update 3 or lower in order to continue using Power Pack’s TFS support. Alternatively, if you’re running Update 4, you can try installing Team Explorer Everywhere.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a Python 2.6 compatibility problem. (Bug #3753)

  • When there are communication errors with a Review Board server, the error message will now contain more details on what went wrong. (Bug #3840)

  • Fixed additional Unicode issues when running in a non-UTF-8 environment.

    Patch by Bartosz Gołek.

rbt post

  • The --diff-filename and --update flags are now mutually-exclusive. (Bug #3755)

    The --update option didn’t make sense when using a diff filename, since the review request could not be guessed. There’s now an error shown when trying to use both.


  • The --tracking-branch option wasn’t overriding the built-in default tracking branch.

    Patch by Andrew Bettison.

Team Foundation Server

  • Modifications to directories or other non-files no longer break diff generation.

  • Fixed issues with file encodings and newlines.
