Power Pack 1.1 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 1.1 adds a major new feature: Reports.

Power Pack Reports

Teams of all sizes can benefit from analyzing and measuring the effectiveness of code review amongst their developers. Better insight leads to better, more cost-effective processes and policies. To help with this, we're adding five different ways of looking at your code review process:

  • Time to First Feedback

    This helpful graph shows how long, on average, it takes for new changes to be reviewed. See where the bottlenecks are in your team.

  • Time to Close

    Some code reviews hang on for far too long, delaying releases. See how often this is happening, and where.

  • Review Request Statistics

    A quick at-a-glance table showing statistics on how frequently team members post review requests, how many issues they typically have filed against them, and how many of those are dropped instead of fixed.

  • Code Review Statistics

    More detailed metrics on the actual code reviews performed within the team. See who on your team are more actively reviewing code, how many issues they tend to find, and how frequently they mark Ship It! You'll have a better sense of who is really engaged in the code review process.

  • Code Review Relationships

    This eye-catching diagram shows who's more actively reviewing who's code. It provides a great way of quickly seeing which parts of your team are working closely together, and who's not pulling their weight.

See the release notes for more information.

To install or upgrade Power Pack, simply run:

sudo easy_install -U ReviewBoardPowerPack

Review Board 2.0.11 released

Another week, another release for you!

Last week's release of 2.0.10, while otherwise fantastic, didn't play so nicely with certain MySQL configurations. This resulted in some people hitting errors during site upgrade. 2.0.11 addresses this issue, and brings a couple other improvements to the table.

Perforce users may notice that the "Change" field on a review request will now reflect the submitted change number, instead of the original (now useless) change number, once the change goes into Perforce.

We also fixed a crash for users in timezones not local to this planet. Unknown timezones will simply default to the server time.

See the release notes for all the details.

Review Board 2.0.10 released

We have another release for you this week! After a couple productive days of bug fixing and performance tuning, we're ready to bring you Review Board 2.0.10.

This release fixes a couple bugs in the new features from 2.0.9, as well as numerous other bugs that have been reported over the past month. If you're running 2.0.9, we strongly recommend upgrading.

We massively improved the load times for dashboards using the People, Groups, or To Me columns. We've also tweaked the Search box to search summaries a lot faster.

See the release notes for the full list of changes.

Review Board 2.0.9 released

We have a big release today, full of bug fixes, performance improvements, usability improvements, and a couple new features.

We fine-tuned the Markdown-capable text fields, helping them to feel more smooth and natural when typing. This is especially noticeable with lots of text, or for those of you who type really fast.

We also sped up the API, making many operations a lot faster, especially querying for review requests. This will benefit RBTools, the UI, and most third-party applications.

Ever want to copy text from a single column in the diff viewer? Now you can! Just select the text and hit Copy as usual. No more unwanted lines or line numbers messing up your pretty code.

Hate getting e-mails about actions you just performed? You can now turn this off in your My Account page.

Extension writers and API consumers, we've given you some new abilities that should help you better script your custom integrations. Remember to show off what you've written in the Package Store!

There are also nearly 20 bug fixes, including fixes for auto-completing users and groups, Markdown rendering and text escaping, incorrect open issue counts in the dashboard, crashes and rendering issues in the diff viewer when viewing some interdiffs, and much more.
