Code Review Process Now Smoother with Review Assistant
January 10, 2013
Devart Team is glad to announce another update for Review Assistant v1.2
This update introduces new features and overall performance improvements, as well as various minor bug-fixes. And we are happy to continue fulfilling your requests.
New and Improved Features in Review Assistant
Windows authentication support
The code review tool now supports Windows Active Directory. A bulk add Active Directory user option was added. Furthermore, users now can use Windows authentication credentials to log into their Review Assistant accounts.
Improved integration features with Code Compare
Previously, adding comments to a comparison was only possible if the comparison was opened through the Code Review Board. Now you can add comments to the comparison even if you open it from an external Version Control System:
- Visual Studio Team Foundation Server interface
Support for Visual Studio 2012 diff tool
If you use the Visual Studio Diff window to review the differences between two files or two versions of the same file, you can still comment the code using Review Assistant features.
Reply editing is supported
The newest Review Assistant feature allows users to edit comments anytime after they were posted. If you are involved in discussion around code and make a mistake while responding to the author's comment, you now can easily fix it.
Refresh speed is increased
We have optimized the data communication between client and server. The client now receives updated data only. This approach reduces the amount of network traffic and allows to increase refresh speed.
