Review Board 1.7.20 Release Notes

Release date: December 10, 2013

Web API Changes

  • When posting a review request and using submit-as, the given username will now be looked up in the auth backend (LDAP, Active Directory, etc.), instead of just the local database.

Bug Fixes

  • Accessing file attachments without review UIs through the API no longer causes an HTTP 500 error. (Bug #3145)

  • Fields in the administration UI containing JSON will no longer cause errors during save. Furthermore, the JSON is now valid and properly editable.

  • Usernames with plus signs are now allowed.

    Patch by Mark Côté.

  • Usernames with plus signs are now allowed. (Bug #2890)

    Patch by Allisa Schmidt.

Internal Changes

  • Rewrote the Mercurial support to use the command line tool.

    The command line tool is meant to be used instead of the Python bindings. We’re now using that instead of the hg module. This solves some compatibility and licensing issues we hit.
