Review Board 5.0.4 is a bug fix release, focusing on improving compatibility throughout the product, addressing problems with Single Sign-On, and making critical changes to the API.
Fixes for new Apache installs
Review Board 5.0.3 auto-generated new configurations for more web servers when first installing a site, but it was missing the new templates for Apache installs.
Review Board 5.0.4 now generates much-improved Apache configurations with wide Apache support. These new configurations help with setting up SSL and configuring
mod_wsgi for different modes.
Better service compatibility
We've fixed compatibility for a few services we integrate with, including:
Review Bot 3.x, our automated code review add-on for Review Board
Single Sign-On providers
If you're using any of these, you'll want to upgrade to 5.0.4.
Important API changes
We introduced the following APIs in Review Board 5.0:
Due to a conflict between the names used for linking to these resources and names used for other resources in our URI templates at the top-level of our API, we've needed to rename these links. If you are using these new APIs, please see the release notes for the new names.
We try hard not to break the API, but this was the less intrusive option.
This also fixes a compatibility problem with the rbt review command.
- Full Single Sign-On support in Docker
- Fixes in the presentation of the Trojan Source warning in the diff viewer
- Better instructions when configuring Elasticsearch
- Additional fixes throughout the product
All the details can be found in the release notes.

Oh, one more thing
We're releasing Review Board 6 beta 1 very soon! 6.0 will be a smaller release focused on a few improvements in the review process.
The beta will be public to everybody, but if you're interested in beta testing, we'd love to hear from you!
