Review Board 5.0 RC 1 Release Notes¶
Release date: September 20, 2022
Review Board 5.0 RC 1 drops support for Python 2.7. This has been end-of-life since January 2020. The 5.x series will support Python 3.7 through 3.11.

$ sudo pip3 install \
-f https://downloads.reviewboard.org/betas/reviewboard/5.0-rc-1/ \
--pre -U ReviewBoard
We do not recommend upgrading a production server with this version of Review Board. It’s best to install on a test server, with a copy of your production database, in case there are any major problems.
The Ship It! indicators in the dashboard are now grey if there’s been a new update since the last Ship It! (Bug #2106)
API tokens can now be set to expire.
Like API policy documents, expiration can be changed at any time, based on the needs of the user.
Users are now e-mailed when attempting to use an expired API token for authentication.
Fixed a regression where new API tokens weren’t being shown in My Account -> API Tokens.
Fixed a regression causing a crash in the Reviews datagrids.
Fixed a precision error that could occur in API rate limiting.
