Hello, world! To those who celebrated Thanksgiving this week, I hope you all had a great one, with delicious food and good company.
Tonight we've released Review Board 1.6.14. This is a large bug fix, performance enhancement, and feature enhancement release, and will probably be the last big 1.6.x release, as we're putting the finishing touches on 1.7.
Some of the highlights include:
- Support for very large files in the diff viewer. We clocked a 44,000 line file at just around 3 seconds, instead of several minutes in 1.6.13.
- Further improving loading times for review requests.
- API support for creating, modifying and deleting review groups and managing their user lists.
- More helpful text when configuring a repository path.
- Many bug fixes and minor improvements.
Full release notes are available.
As I said above, we're very close to the final 1.7 release now. We'll have a release candidate out any day, and barring any major problems, expect to have a final release within the next two weeks.
