Review Board 1.6.5 released

We just put out a small maintenance release of Review Board 1.6.5 tonight. This has a couple small changes that may be useful to users of Git or the web API.

The biggest change, however, is that it actually will install properly on new installations. The Django project just released their version 1.4, and Review Board 1.6.x is incompatible with it. Now, we hard-code the latest compatible version of Django.

If you recently tried installing Review Board on a new system, please try removing your version of Django 1.4 and install Review Board 1.6.5.

Release notes are available.

RBTools 0.4.1 released

A few regressions were noted in RBTools 0.4.0. In particular, Python 2.4 support broke, and the --diff-filename= option broke with STDIN and --username and --password provided.

These have been fixed, and we've released 0.4.1. Give it a try, and please let us know of any more regressions.

Release notes are available.

Review Board 1.6.4.1 released

A couple small bugs crept in to 1.6.4 that affected users sorting by the Review ID column in the Dashboard and the saving of cache backend settings. We've put out a small 1.6.4.1 release that fixes these problems.

Release notes are available.

Review Board 1.6.4 released

Review Board 1.6.4 is out the door!

This is primarily a bug fix release, but with a few added goodies.

Administrators trying to move Review Board to a different type of database (for example, SQLite to MySQL) can now use new database dumping and loading management commands. These will store the database in a database-agnostic format and load them back in. It's not a fast process, but should make life a lot easier in these situations.

Some changes were made to the webapi for compatibility with future RBTools releases. The 0.5.0 release will end up requiring at least Review Board 1.6.4.

Along with these, there's a new hosting service entry for Codebase HQ, issue tracking checkboxes in the Review dialog, and diff viewer improvements for Objective-C++ .mm files. And, of course, a large number of bug fixes.

Release notes are available.

RBTools 0.4.0 released

RBTools 0.4.0 is out! There's some great improvements that some of you will like, but more than anything, it's the first step toward a brand new, more exciting RBTools.

The highlights of 0.4.0 include:

  • Most command line options can now be set automatically in .reviewboardrc files. This includes such things as the branch, Perforce configuration, --submit-as, and more.
  • Added a -g (--guess-fields) that works as a convenience for --guess-summary --guess-description.
  • The system's HTTP(S) proxy can be disabled with --disable-proxy.
  • Numerous other bug fixes.

One of the big changes for this release is internal. We're starting to build a Python API that will talk to Review Board servers, which would be usable by other applications. It's not close to ready yet, but a couple of the large parts have been done for this release. In particular, the SCMClients, which talk to the various tools like Git and Subversion, have been refactored out into reusable classes. Down the road, it will be possible to have third-party modules that extend post-review's client support.

Before long, we'll be dropping support for the old Review Board API found in Review Board 1.0 and early 1.5 versions. This should be considered the last release to support the old API.

Release notes are available.

Possible downtime as we move away from GoDaddy

As many of you are undoubtedly aware, there is a piece of legislation named SOPA (the Stop Online Piracy Act) in the United States that is undergoing much criticism and debate. In its current form, it has the potential to do much damage to the Internet as we know it, and it has a long list of companies and open source projects that are against it. We are one of them.

You may also be aware that GoDaddy, a domain registrar famous for using scantily clad women to advertise domain name purchases, was not only backing SOPA but actively helped draft bits of it. As a result, many tech companies and projects are moving away from GoDaddy as part of a "Move Your Domain Day" this December 29th. Again, we are one of them.

We don't anticipate much downtime, but if you find you have trouble reaching this site, please be patient. It may take time for the DNS records to update, and with the mass exodus away from GoDaddy, there may be other unexpected delays. We should be moved over shortly.

New Review Board Security Releases: 1.5.7 and 1.6.3

It was brought to our attention today that Review Board 1.5.x and 1.6.x had a security vulnerability involving browser-side script injection in the diff viewer and screenshot pages. We take such things seriously, and are putting out a couple of releases to fix it. We strongly advise everyone to update, especially if you're running a public server.

Review Board 1.5.7 and 1.6.3 have been released. If you're running 1.6.x, just upgrade as normal, but if you're running 1.5.x, you need to upgrade by doing:

$ sudo easy_install -U ReviewBoard==1.5.7

Otherwise, you'll automatically upgrade to 1.6.x.

Thanks to Damian Johnson for letting us know about this vulnerability and providing a patch to fix it.

Review Board 1.6.2 released

Review Board 1.6.2 is out. It's a bug fix release that takes care of several issues people have hit. In particular, it should have a proper Apache WSGI configuration for subdirectory installs out of the box, some SCM integration fixes, browser compatibility improvements, and various other things.

We also have a couple bits of new API for those who want to automate review group creation, or archive deprecated repositories.Check out the release notes for the full list.

RBTools 0.3.4 released

RBTools 0.3.4 is out. It features an authentication fix for users on RBCommons, fixes for --guess-summary with newlines on Git, solves diff uploading problems on Python 2.7, and adds a new --change-description parameter.

Full release notes are available.

Review Board 1.6.1 released

Hot on the tails of 1.6, we have an important security update and bug fix release. 1.6.1 bumps our required Django version to 1.3.1, which contains a number of important security fixes.

It also fixes the counters bug that many people have noticed in the dashboard, where the number of review requests is listed as 0 or a negative number. This was caused by an incorrect default value set when upgrading. Upgrading to 1.6.1 will fix this default, and reset the counts for all users. You should see correct values the next time you use the dashboard.

Release notes are available.
