Review Board 1.7.7 released

Review Board 1.7.7 is out. It has a couple new features for admins, a series of bug fixes, and some worthwhile performance improvements that you shouldn't miss.

We did some profiling and found a couple common cases we were able to speed up considerably. The Dashboard and All Review Requests pages should be faster, as should any changes involving parent diffs.

There's also some additions in here that set things up for the upcoming PDF review extension. If you're interested in giving that a try, sign up for the beta..

Private beta for document (PDF) review

Review Board has been a fantastic tool for software developers for many years now, but over time, we've seen people try to use it for reviewing things beyond code. We've therefore been working to make Review Board useful to a wider audience beyond just developers.

Lately, we've been working toward the first part of this, a Review Board extension to enable peer review of PDF documents. We'll be holding a private beta of this extension pretty soon, and are opening up a sign-up form for those who are interested in giving it a try and giving us feedback.

In order to help fund the Review Board project, we plan to make this a paid extension (but free for open source or educational use). In exchange for your comments and feedback, participants in this beta will be offered a discount off the list price once we hit 1.0.

If you'd like to participate, please fill out the signup form and we'll be in touch.
