Power Pack 5.2 adds new connection options for Cliosoft SOS and improved repository support for VersionVault and ClearCase.
It also offers improved compatibility with Review Board 6 Beta 1.
What is Power Pack?
Power Pack is licensed add-on for Review Board, offering:
- PDF document review and diffing, allowing you to review documents, schematics, designs, contracts, and code all in one place.
- Report generation, giving you insight into code review practices in your organization.
- Advanced server management for scalability, database management, and splitting/merging installs
- Support for enterprise source code management systems, including AWS CodeCommit, Azure DevOps/TFS, Bitbucket Server, Cliosoft SOS, GitHub Enterprise, HCL VersionVault, and IBM Rational ClearCase.
You can try Power Pack free for 60 days or purchase a license for your server.
Let's explore what's new in 5.2.
SSH Connectivity for Cliosoft SOS
With Power Pack 5.2, Review Board can now communicate with Cliosoft SOS source code management servers over SSH. This simplifies setup, allowing you to use an existing licensed user on any remote server.
This is now the preferred method for talking to Cliosoft SOS.
Larger ClearCase/VersionVault Repositories
ClearCase/VersionVault repositories now support up to 48KB worth of VOB OIDs. This lets you connect to very large repositories with thousands of VOBs.
Review Board 6 Compatibility
Power Pack 5.2 is fully compatible with the current beta of Review Board 6 and the upcoming release (due out soon). If you're planning to upgrade to Review Board 6, we recommend preparing by upgrading to Power Pack 5.2.
