Review Board 1.7.6 Release Notes

Release date: February 21, 2013

This release contains all bug fixes and features found in Review Board version 1.6.16.

Security Updates

We now require Django 1.4.5, which fixes a few security vulnerabilities. We recommend all 1.7.x users upgrade to 1.7.6.

New Features

  • Added Perforce ticket-based authentication. (Bug #1623)

    Perforce servers using ticket-based authentication are now properly supported.

    When configuring a Perforce repository, you can now enable ticket-based authentication, and Review Board will request a new ticket as needed.

  • Added a setting for choosing Review Board log levels. (Bug #1859)

    The minimum log level can now be set in the Administration UI, under the Logging settings page. You can now set the log level to “Info,” for example, to keep the log smaller, or “Debug,” to get additional information.

    Patch by Raja Venkataraman.

Web API Changes

  • Added API support for querying and manipulating default reviewers. This is accessible at /api/default-reviewers/.

  • Repositories deleted through the Web API are now only archived if they have any associated review requests. Otherwise, they’re deleted, which helps prevent collisions when creating a repository, deleting it, and re-creating it.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed fetching files with FedoraHosted. Patch by Stephen Gallagher. (Bug #2897)

  • Fixed some cases where URLs to user pages were incorrect, especially on subdirectory installs and local sites. Patch by Raja Venkataraman.

  • We try harder now to set the PYTHONPATH for subprocesses, which should fix some issues fetching files over Subversion. (Bug #2834)

  • The Administration UI dashboard widgets no longer cache their data too aggressively. They should be more up-to-date and accurate now. (Bug #2753)

    Patch by Yuri Honami.

  • Fixed showing the error box when entering an invalid reviewer. Patch by Jon Demelo. (Bug #2869)

  • Fixed config/ and db/ links for extensions, when in a subdirectory install. Patch by Raja Venkataraman. (Bug #2843)

  • The Manual Updates page for the media upload directory no longer points to a non-existent wiki page.
