Review Board 1.6 beta 2 released

UPDATE: 1.6 beta 2 is re-released! We had to pull the update due to some PostgreSQL regressions and an annoying visual problem on every page. Whether you downloaded 1.6 beta 2 before or are on 1.6 beta 1, grab this update!

Fresh out of the oven is the new 1.6 beta 2 release. It smells of warm chocolate chip cookies and awesome new features. Some of the key highlights:

  • Basic issue tracking. Reviewers can mark a comment as a defect in the code, and reviewers will get a handy UI under the comment for quickly marking that defect as resolved. It's like replying with "Fixed," but with less typing!
  • Quick search. Every install now has a search field with quick search enabled. Type some part of a user's name, a group name, a review request summary, or a review request ID, and immediately search results will appear below the box.
  • Better review draft banners. The draft banners now stay on screen while any part of a review is being shown. No more hunting for the top of the review for the banner.

There's way more in this release, but those are some of the most common user-visible changes. Much work has been put into this beta, from us and from many contributors, so please check it out.

See the release notes for more information.

We plan for one more beta/RC before the final release with a few more features and fixes.
