Today's Review Board release is full of new features, integrations, and improved hosting service support. Let's dive right in.
Link to your Asana and Trello tasks
This works similarly to the Bugs field right now, and opens the doors for tighter integration later.
Post updates to Mattermost and I Done This
Review Board can now post updates about review requests and reviews to Mattermost channels, keeping your team up-to-date. This brings all the benefits that Slack users enjoy, while keeping all updates within your own network.
Updates can also be posted to I Done This, which helps team members build up daily and weekly status reports as they work.
Review code stored on Gerrit
If your company uses Gerrit for hosting, but teams want the code review benefits of Review Board, we have you covered. Review Board can now link up to your Git repositories hosted on Gerrit, letting you post changes for review the same way you would on other services.
This does require the use of a special plugin to enhance Gerrit's API, so see the installation instructions to get started.
Better compatibility with GitLab
We've rewritten our GitLab support to take advantage of the benefits of their latest API. Nested groups and large numbers of repositories are now supported, and edge cases have been addressed. Overall, your GitLab experience should be better now and going forward.
Supporting self-signed SSL certs
If you're using a self-hosted service like GitLab, GitHub Enterprise, Bitbucket Server, or Gerrit, you can now use self-signed SSL certificates without workarounds. You'll be prompted to confirm the certificate when adding the repository, and then you're set.
And lots more
- Custom file-based filters in the diff viewer
