Review Board 2.0.17 Release Notes

Release date: June 15, 2015


  • Review Board now installs PyCrypto 2.6+ as a dependency.

  • The README is no longer missing from the package.


  • Extensions reading/writing extra data on reviews through JavaScript can now do so through RB.Review().

Bug Fixes

Diff Viewer

  • Diffs for files that were copied without being modified weren’t being shown in the diff viewer.

    Patch by Steven MacLeod.

  • Internal errors when generating diffs are now shown on the page, rather than a generic HTTP 500.


  • Fixed the review dialog not emitting the publishing and published events, which are needed by some extensions.

  • Modifying a draft for a review request that depends on multiple review requests, each listing the same reviewer, who has private profiles enabled, no longer results in an HTTP 500 error.


  • Fixed some errors and regressions in showing error messages from publishing or reopening review requests.


  • Fixed database entries for reviews in the administration UI not showing the extra_data field.
