Review Board 2.0 RC 2 released

Review Board 2.0 RC 2 is out, everybody! Thanks to all the great feedback from our beta testers, we were able to identify and fix the few remaining issues keeping us from a solid 2.0 release.

There's a bunch of fixes for little things here and there. Some polish, some performance enhancements, and a couple usability improvements. All in all, the release is feeling pretty stable, and we're feeling confident that the final 2.0 is just around the corner.

We also included a couple experimental feature additions from this semester's batch of students:

  • The dashboard widgets in the administration UI can now be reordered through drag-and-drop, allowing you to see the widgets that are most important to you at a glance.
  • We've added an experimental WebHook for those using GitHub. This hook will close any review requests referenced in a pushed commit, filling in the revision and branch where the commit landed. This requires a publicly-accessible Review Board install.

Along with this, we've made some nice improvements to rb-site. It has a new streamlined installation experience, as well as new management commands for working with installed extensions.

There's a few other goodies we've thrown in as well. See our release notes for all the details.
