Review Board 2.0.6 Release Notes

Release date: August 20, 2014

New Features

  • The condensediffs management command now shows an estimated time remaining until completion.

Usability Improvements

  • All edit fields on the review request page now have OK/Cancel buttons, in order to prevent confusion about how to save or cancel editing (Bug #3474)

  • Modal boxes (such as the file upload dialog) now appear and fade in the background faster.

Bug Fixes


  • Leading spaces in plain text are now escaped when rendering to Markdown. (Bug #3503)

Review Requests

  • Fixed a breakage that resulted in posting changes using RBTools with a blank commit ID.

  • Fixed a regression in 2.0.5 where the height of the text fields could overflow the height of the review request box.

  • Prevented some text from jumping when going in/out of edit mode for fields.

  • Fixed the display of unfocused editors in file attachment thumbnails.

Diff Viewer

  • Fixed the revision selector on Internet Explorer. (Bug #3373)

File Attachments

  • File attachment mimetypes are now guessed if the browser doesn’t have a specific mimetype to show us, or sent us an invalid mimetype. (Bug #2269, Bug #3427)

New Review Request Page

  • The list of commits is no longer cached so aggressively, meaning that new commits will show up in the list quicker. (Bug #3511)

  • Fixed uploading diffs on Internet Explorer. (Bug #3441)


  • SVN credentials are now passed in the request to verify a self-signed certificate, fixing some problems people had with verification.

  • Fixed unicode issues when processing errors from PySVN. (Bug #3518)

  • Fixed a crash with Subvertpy when handling file paths ending in a slash.
