Review Board 1.5.6 Release Notes¶
Release date: August 20, 2011
PATHenvironment variable is now shown in the error when patch.exe can’t be found, in order to help figure out where it needs to go.
rb-site more clearly informs that an existing database with valid permissions is needed for installation.
rb-site now lists recommendations for different services, and lists options that aren’t officially supported.
Tabs in the diff viewer are now marked up, allowing custom stylesheets to display them differently. By default, they don’t look any different. Patch by Jan Koprowski.
Added Fedora Hosted to the hosting provider options. Patch by Stephen Gallagher.
Editing a field and then canceling it on a review request now prompts for confirmation before discarding the new text. (Bug #2096)
Control-S now saves the current text in review request fields. (Bug #1958)
We now support storing lots of text in the Description and Testing Done fields on MySQL. (Bug #1481)
Review Board now requires Pygments 1.4 or higher. Older installations running older versions of Pygments should get a performance increase when rendering diffs.
Using Review Board with wsgi without mod_python installed on the system no longer prevents Review Board from breaking. (Bug #2023)
Screenshot draft captions are now always displayed correctly. Previously, only the main caption would display, making them appear blank on new uploads.
Changing screenshot draft captions now invalidates the cache, allowing them to be seen when reloading the page.
When sending an e-mail, we no longer crash if the sender has no e-mail address. (Bug #1943)
Caching really long files or diffs now works more consistently. Previously, it was possible for the data to not be stored correctly. (Bug #1660)
Fixed a date range calculation sometimes causing the log viewer to fail on the first of the month. (Bug #2218)
Failing to load the Review Board News feed in the administration UI due to a proxy will no longer cause an HTTP 500 error to display. (Bug #2189)
Invalid bug tracker URLs (those containing more than one
%s, for example) in the administration UI no longer breaks review requests.
The Mercurial support no longer overrides the SSH client configuration if one is already provided. Patch by Ingo Proetel.
recaptcha_clientdependency has been renamed to
recaptcha-client. Both technically work, but the former is more correct and makes packaging easier.
Fixed a few occasional errors that could show up on the dashboard under certain conditions.
