Review Board 1.5 RC 2 Release Notes¶
Release date: September 19, 2010
Added Python 2.7 compatibility.
Added compatibility with PyLucene 3.x. Support for 2.x still remains. (Bug #1449)
Added support for review requests without diffs, for image/screenshot review.
As more companies use Review Board, we’ve seen an increasing demand in using it just for image review. We’ve removed the restriction that a review request must have an associated diff. Users can choose to upload a diff label, or just keep it diff-free.
Furthermore, users can now set their repository to (None - Graphics Only) when creating a review request, which makes it clear that the review request will be used for image review. In this mode, the review request can never have a diff uploaded.
Added support for the
?counts-only=1query parameter for draft screenshot lists.
Renamed the draft screenshot resource key from
Added support for HTTP DELETE on screenshot draft resources.
Added the screenshot image URL in the screenshot resources.
?interdiff_revision=query parameter to
?interdiff-revision=on diff comment resources.
Removed support for HTTP PUT on review group resources. Issuing this command would just return an error.
Removed the unused
whitespace_onlydata from the opcodes results in the per-file diff resource.
Fixed links to diff and screenshot comment resources when linked to from other resources.
The user resource resource no longer fails with usernames containing a period.
Added support for HTTP Accept mimetypes on all resources.
Fixed problems using
?api_format=on HTTP GET, PUT and POST resources.
Several usability problems with screenshot drag-and-drop have been fixed. In particular, we now guarantee that the drop area will be on-screen, which was a problem before on new review requests.
Fixed an Internal Server Error when using an SSH-based URL for a repository without using a username or password.
Fixed a CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery) configuration problem for password recovery. The CSRF verification token wasn’t being set on the recovery form, preventing password recovery from working. (Bug #1723)
Repositories weren’t being set as visible by default, forcing administrators to specifically make it visible.
Some errors, such as File Not Found, was failing to show up on the New Review Request page.
Remote Git repositories using the raw URL method would fail when presented with a diff containing a short SHA1. We now verify during diff upload that only full SHA1s are used. (Bug #1517)
When failing to find an account in Active Directory, we were failing to fall back to built-in authentication, essentially locking out the locally created administration user. (Bug #1536)
Accessing a review request with a newly auto-created account (using LDAP, Active Directory, or NIS) would cause an Internal Server Error due to the user’s profile not having been created yet. (Bug #1718)
Gecos fields on NIS backends no longer causes authentication failures. (Bug #1793)
