Review Board 2.5.1 Release Notes

Release date: November 3, 2015

This release contains all bug fixes and features found in Review Board version 2.0.20.

New Features

  • The branch field of a review request is now populated when posting an existing commit for review. (Bug #3935)

    Patch by Anthony Hache.

Usability Improvements

  • The line numbers shown in the diff viewer no longer distract from the code. (Bug #3981)

    The line numbers are now lighter and aren’t shown as bold, helping to keep focus on the code itself.

    Patch by Edward Lau.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the Summary column in the dashboard when using Python 2.6. (Bug #4005)

    The Summary column was being built using some logic that didn’t work on Python 2.6, resulting in broken summaries.

  • The review dialog’s footer field is no longer hidden if it has content.

    This could happen before if making some comments on a new review, adding a footer, and then deleting the comments. The footer would be invisible and thus uneditable.

  • Fixed the presentation of mode options when viewing image diffs.

    The default image diff mode wasn’t being highlighted when first viewing the image diff. They would also sometimes wrap when selected.

  • Fixed serialization of review replies for webhook payloads. (Bug #3999)

    The links in the payloads were previously incorrect for replies.

  • Fixed the standard authentication backend calling the wrong function when trying to create a user under specific circumstances.

    This wasn’t likely to cause problems in real usage, but could be an issue for anyone basing a new authentication backend off of the standard backend.
