RBTools 0.7.8 Release Notes¶
Release date: January 11, 2017
This release introduces some much-needed fixes and improvements to our installers.
The Windows installer has been updated to include Python 2.7.13, which includes bug fixes and enhanced support for SSL certificate verification.
Updated the code signing certificate used for our builds.
Improved Python version compatibility.
The installer will now install RBTools in such a way where the Python 2.7 version will be used for all modern versions of macOS, and the Python 2.6 version will be used for older (Snow Leopard era) versions.
Previously, the Python 2.6 version was always the dominant version, leading to compatibility problems when trying to integrate with the RBTools Python API.
tqdmdependency issue many users encountered with recent versions of the RBTools installer.
rbt patch --printcan now be run outside of a source tree.
This is useful when you want to fetch the patch from a review request, but don’t necessary have or need a checkout of the source tree.
Patch by Stephen Kiernan.
.reviewboardrcfile now stores the repository type.
REPOSITORY_TYPEsetting is now set for new
.reviewboardrcfiles, speeding up RBTools commands by eliminating the need to guess the repository type, and fixing issues when nesting repositories.
If you already have a
.reviewboardrc, you can manually edit it to include this setting.
Fixed a crash when passing Unicode characters as arguments on the command line.
-g) no longer overwrites
--guess-descriptionif those are specified.
Team Foundation Server¶
Fixed generating and uploading diffs containing Unicode BOM characters.
