Review Board 1.7 Beta 2 Release Notes

Release date: September 26, 2012

This release contains all bug fixes and features found in Review Board version 1.6.12.

New Features

  • Introduced a new style for Review Board.

    Review Board’s look and feel has remained the same since we first began development in 2006. We felt it was time for a change, so we’ve revamped it and modernized it a bit.

    The new site design should be familiar to all existing Review Board users, but makes better use of space, and is a bit more polished and consistent.

    We’ll iterate on this a bit before the release. Please let us know if you hit any problems with the new style.

Performance Improvements

  • We’ve updated our dependency on jQuery to the latest version. We’ve been on an old one for quite a while, and there have been many performance improvements since. The site’s responsiveness should be a little faster now.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the paths to certain decorational image files.

  • File attachment comments are no longer missing from the review box. Patch by Bogdana Popa.

  • Fixed problems with issue tracking statuses in the review box. Patch by Bogdana Popa.

  • Fixed wrapping of the text in the change updates.

  • Admin UI widgets no longer overlap when loading the page.
