Review Board 2.0 beta 3 is out! This is an amazing release, with over 15 new user-facing features, over 40 bug fixes, nearly 20 new API and
extension improvements, and some significant performance and usability enhancements.
This is a huge beta, but it's also expected to be our last beta. We'll be moving on to RC next, with a final 2.0 release (hopefully) around the corner. If you're planning to upgrade to Review Board 2.0 (and why wouldn't you?), you should give the beta try.
Some of the highlights of this release include:
Issue tracking in the dashboard
See at a glance which changes are ready to ship and which still have work left to do.
You'll never see a Ship It! if there are any issues still open.
Better review request updates
Changes to the Description and Testing Done fields are shown as diffs, making it easy to see what changed.
New diff uploads list the modified files and the complexity of the changes.
New file attachments are shown as thumbnails, and can be reviewed right from the box.
Indentation markers in diffs
Your indentation changes are now shown clearly without distracting from your other changes. Unlike most diff viewers, we don't clutter your view with inserts, deletes, or replaces.
Super useful for Python files.
All new My Account page
It's now easier to find and join groups!
This is also a great place for extensions to provide per-user customization.
Customizable "approval" for review requests
Extensions can decide if a review request is approved, and API consumers (such as pre-commit hooks) can enforce those decisions.
We're working on some hooks that can take advantage of this.
Improved post-commit support for Subversion
Non-standard repository layouts now work a lot better with the New Review Request page.
And much, much more.
