Power Pack 1.0.4 is released

We've just released a new build of Power Pack, our premium set of features for Review Board. Power Pack includes support for GitHub Enterprise, PDF review, and more.

Power Pack 1.0.4 makes it easier to install a trial license for the first time, or to purchase a full license, removing one of the pains of getting up-and-running with Power Pack.

It also enhances PDF support by fixing several bugs, better handling edge cases, and improving performance.

There are also improvements to Review Board 2.0.x compatibility, and other assorted bug fixes.

See the release notes for more information.

To install or upgrade Power Pack, simply run:

sudo easy_install -U ReviewBoardPowerPack

Just a reminder, we're still taking sign-ups for the new Power Pack Reports beta!

Review Board 2.0.5 released

Over the past few days, we noticed that some upgrades from pre-2.0 to 2.0.4 were failing. This was due to a bug in Django Evolution, a sister project that helps with our database upgrades. We since temporarily pulled the release to prevent any major problems from occurring.

We have since fixed the problem in Django Evolution, have restored 2.0.4, and are now bringing you 2.0.5.

2.0.5 requires the new Django Evolution, fixing the upgrade woes. It also fixes issues reported to us over the past few days with multi-line text fields, re-opening closed review requests as an administrator, and more. We've also added commit IDs/revisions to the list of commits in the New Review Request page.

See the release notes for the full list of changes.

Review Board 1.7.27 and 2.0.4 security releases

We have two new Review Board releases for you tonight. Both fix a couple security vulnerabilities that came to our attention, as well as several other bugs. There are also a few new feature additions.

One of the security vulnerabilities allowed an attacker to construct a URL that would inject custom JavaScript into the page, which could then be passed to a user, allowing the custom code to run in their session.

The other vulnerability allowed users without access to a private review request to construct a URL for accessing original or patched files from the repository, if they knew the right series of database IDs.

Feature-wise, 1.7.27 gained a few of the recent additions to review UIs, support pages, and API that were introduced in 2.0.3.

2.0.4 gained support for uploading parent diffs in the New Review Request page.

If you're upgrading to 1.7.27, you'll need to run:

sudo easy_install ReviewBoard==1.7.27

For the full list of changes, see the 1.7.27 and 2.0.4 release notes.

Review Board 2.0.3 and the all-new Package Store

We have two exciting announcements for you today!

Review Board 2.0.3

The first, which you've already guessed, is a brand-new Review Board release. In 2.0.3, you'll find a number of long-requested bug fixes, and some new features.

The highlights include:

  • Empty files can now be posted for review.
  • Users can now log in with their e-mail addresses instead of their usernames.
  • Long, unbreakable lines in the diff viewer now wrap properly in all cases.
  • GitLab v6.8+ servers with over 100 repositories now work.
  • Far more useful sample crontab files, which are now auto-generated when upgrading your site.
  • Counters in the dashboard should finally be fixed!
  • Interdiffs are more reliable.
  • Lots of Unicode-related bug fixes for diffs and Subversion have been squashed.

All-in-all, there are 23 bugs fixed in this release, and a few more new features we didn't even mention.

See the release notes for the full details.

Oh, and it also links to the new Package Store. And that brings us to:

The Review Board Package Store!

Today, we're happy to introduce the all-new Review Board Package Store, the new home for extensions and software that work with Review Board.

Administrators and end-users can browse the store for software to see what's out there to improve their Review Board experience.

Developers can post what they've made, show it off with screenshots, and let users know what's new with new release announcements.

The store is brand new, so we only have a few things up there right now. If you're a developer writing software that integrates with Review Board on any level, we'd like to encourage you to add it to the store.

We welcome any feedback on the new store. Bug reports, category suggestions, new features, or anything else that would make your life easier.

RBTools 0.6.2 released

This evening's release of RBTools 0.6.2 fixes several bugs throughout rbt post and rbt patch.

Mercurial users will find that rbt patch now behaves as expected especially for Git diffs. No need to manually fetch and patch by hand anymore.

We've fixed some breakages that users hit with error messages coming from Review Board under certain conditions, and some compatibility issues with Perforce, ClearCase, and Git.
