Branch Reviews

Crucible 3.6 makes creating reviews for branches fast and simple. By selecting the branch to review, and a base branch to compare it to, Crucible will:

  • Show only the changes made on the branch
  • Hide any irrelevant changes merged between the base branch and the target branch
  • Let you continue with the review after some of the changes are merged from the branch to the base branch

This new functionality is available when adding content to a review via the “Choose branches” option.

New Actions dialog

Now you can perform many review operations (Join, Close, Complete, etc.) and navigate to any administration-related actions without leaving the keyboard. Hitting a single ‘.’ (dot) key stroke displays a dialog with common actions. The available actions are context-aware, and are quickly filtered as you begin typing.

Performance improvements continue

We’re passionate about performance improvements, and it really shows in this release. You’ll notice a significant improvement in the following areas:

  • Diff calculation for review pages and changeset pages
  • User listings pages–both in the application (/users) and the admin section (/admin/, especially for large enterprises with many thousands of users
