Review Board 1.7.11 released

Review Board 1.7.11 is released. It's a small release that just fixes a visual issue with the drop-down menus on IE9, and a compatibility issue with Python 2.5.

If you're primarily using non-IE browsers, and using something newer than Python 2.5, you don't need to upgrade to 1.7.11.

For those using Python 2.5, we recommend planning an upgrade to Python 2.7 soon. Review Board 1.8 will stop supporting Python 2.5, and 2.7 is your best bet for longer-term compatibility.

Release notes are available.

Review Board 1.6.17 and 1.7.10 released

We have a pair of releases today for users of Review Board 1.6.x and 1.7.x. Both contain important security updates, and we recommend updating immediately.

This security vulnerability allows attackers to execute JavaScript under certain conditions. There are no known vulnerabilities in the wild. The latest 1.6.x and 1.7.x releases are susceptible to the flaw. We have released 1.6.x and 1.7.x updates. We recommend that all users upgrade their install to a modern release, particularly if you are running a version prior to 1.6.

Along with the security updates, Review Board 1.7.10 provides some new bug fixes, API enhancements (for comments and screenshots), and UI refinement.

See the 1.6.17 and 1.7.10 releases for more info.

Review Board 1.7.9 released

Some of our wonderful early adopters found a couple bugs in 1.7.8 and some missing API for the new Depends On feature. We decided to get these out before everyone else upgraded.

Thanks early adopters!

Review Board 1.7.9 has an installation fix for some MySQL configurations, new API for Depends On and Blocks fields on review requests, and fixes to the recommended cgit URL for Git repositories.

Release notes are available.

Review Board 1.7.8 released

Review Board 1.7.8 is out, and it's chock full of goodies.

Review requests have two new fields: Blocks and Depends On. Developers can mark that a review request depends on another review request, helping reviewers prioritize what to review first. This goes both ways. A review request depending on another will be shown as being blocked on the other.

We've increased performance across the board. Every page's load times should be reduced. Upload times for diffs will, in many cases, also be reduced, as we won't hammer your repository as hard. This will also help with those using GitHub who may worry about API limits. The dashboard's reloading is smoother and less prone to problems when the connection or server goes down.

Clicking "Get Support" now goes to an all-new support page with some helpful links. If you have a support contract with us, the support page will give you an easy way to contact us with a problem.

You can even change the page that "Get Support" points to, which is handy if you have your own support page in your company.

That's not all. There's several improvements to the extension framework, improved logging for error resolution, and several bug fixes.

See the release notes for the full list of changes.
