Review Board 1.6 RC1 released

One step closer to the finale. Tonight we released Review Board 1.6 RC1, which is full of bug fixes and some fantastic new features.

The highlights of this release are file attachments, private profiles, Private GitHub Organizations, and performance enhancements. Let's break a couple of those down.

The file attachment support makes it possible to upload any type of file to a review request. Tarballs containing important resources to commit that can't appear in the diff viewer, log files, sample data, or anything else. Reviewers can add a comment on the file, which will show up in the review.

Private profiles allow users to prevent other users from seeing their e-mail address on their user page or through the API. The name is also stripped from both locations, though not from review requests themselves. This feature is mostly geared toward open source projects.

There's also many bug fixes and improvements. All of which can be found in the release notes.

We'll be polishing things up, fixing a couple more bugs, and then getting the final 1.6 out the door hopefully soon. Stay tuned, and let us know if you hit any problems!
