Review Bot 3.2 is a small release focusing on compatibility improvements, Secret Scanning enhancements, and improvements in automated reviews.
What is Review Bot?
Review Bot is an extension to Review Board that adds automated code reviews to your workflow. It integrates with an assortment of third-party code lint, compliance, and security checking tools to help catch problems early.
It's free, open source, and extensible, making it a great addition to your Review Board server.
New in 3.2: Compatibility Improvements
Review Board 5 and 6 compatibility has improved. Some compatibility issues with recent releases of Review Board 5 have been smoothed over, including a crash when browsing the database entries for Review Bot tools.
We've also addressed issues processing results from Shellcheck and PMD.
Our support for Secret Scanning has been updated to look for the new enhanced API token format introduced in Review Board 5.
If you're reviewing infrastructure or tools that integrate with Review Board, this will help catch any API tokens you accidentally leave in a file.
Automated Review Improvements
Some tools had a tendency to leave comments spanning entire functions or classes, making it difficult to read some reviews.
Review Bot now caps all comments to 10 lines. When capped, the original line range will be listed in the comment.
That's it for this release!
