Review Board 1.6.2 Release Notes¶
Release date: November 9, 2011
Staff members can now access all Local Sites.
Server administrators can now view content on all Local Sites, instead of only the ones they’re a part of.
Auto-generated e-mails are now marked as “auto-generated” to avoid auto replies.
This is recommended as per RFC 3834. Patch by Erik Johansson.
Added API for deleting review groups.
Issuing a HTTP DELETE on a review group in the API will now delete that group if the caller has the appropriate permissions.
Allow for archiving repositories.
Updating a repository and passing
archive_name=<value>will change the repository’s name to an auto-generated, archived name. This is useful when deprecating a repository, and will prevent name clashes in the future.
Fixed the default Apache WSGI configuration for subdirectory installs.
The default WSGI configuration had a WSGIScriptAlias setting that didn’t work quite right for many users. Now, newly generated files should have a better default that works out of the box.
Added explicit permissions in the default Apache configurations.
Depending on the default server configuration, several bits of media may break. We’re now explicit in the configuration we need.
The favicon for the page is now properly switching to the “New Updates” favicon on all browsers when there are review request updates.
Specifying bug numbers on review requests without a repository no longer fails. (Bug #2333).
Fixed saving captions for newly added screenshots and files.
Fixed using special characters in SVN URLs.
If an SVN URL contained any special characters (such as most Unicode characters), posting a review request would fail. The characters are now handled sanely. Patch by Ralph Habermann.
Fixed Bazaar when pointing to a repository root that exists on the local filesystem. Patch by Michael Plump.
Clicking Cancel on an “Add comment” box now fully removes the box, instead of leaving a bit of it behind.
Fixed dashboard counters for brand new review requests on Local Sites.
Group names in the dashboard are now ordered by name in the sidebar.
Fixed a hard-coded media URL for the “Expand All” button.
This would fail on subdirectory installations. Patch by Chris Tandiono. (Bug #2343)
Fixed a problem with IE8 where the “Publish” button on comment dialogs weren’t being shown.
Fixed API authentication failures when
:was in the password. Patch by Dave Druska. (Bug #2334)
