New statuses for review

  • Added new Response Required status for a review. This status is for when a reviewer cannot finish a review, because there are questions that the author of the code should answer before the review can be continued.
  • Renamed the Rejected status to Rework Needed, which describes the state of the code more precisely.

Automatic Review Status

  • Previously, a reviewer defined the status of a review manually. Now the reviewer simply clicks Complete Review, and the status of the review is determined automatically based on the type of comments specified.

New review comment categories

  • A comment marked with Question - the review will get the status Response Required.
  • A comment marked with Should Fix - indicates a deficiency in the code that is not critical.
  • A comment marked with Must Fix - indicates an error in the code. Previously, such comments were marked with the Defect flag.

View changes in a single editor

  • Previously, when viewing changes to files, a separate document opened for each file. As a result, a reviewer had to close a lot of documents at the end of the review. Now a single diff-tool window opens, which alternately displays changes to different files.

New e-mail notifications

  • Changed the appearance of the letter, improved readability and added missing information. In addition, now all the notifications on one review are combined into message chains.

Improved Code Review Board

  • Branches of code included in the review for Git & Mercurial are displayed on the board.
  • A reviewer now has the ability to view revisions included in a review.
  • Unnecessary dialogs with warnings were removed.
  • Improved working with comments.

Other improvements

  • Improved export of reviews to XLS files.
  • Improved verification of incompatibility between client and server versions.
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2017 supported.
  • The database has been optimized, the total volume has been reduced.
