A new state of "obsolete" should be created. This
would be used when a new review is created by
specifying that the new review makes a previous review
obsolete. If a user tries to view an obsolete review
they would still be able to see the diffs and comments,
however there should be a prominent link at the top of
the page directing them to the new review. If a chain
of obsolete reviews are created then the users would be
able to follow these links from the initial review
through each stage to the most current review.

    I can definately see merit in the idea, I've just been busy
    with stacks of
    other stuff, I haven't had any time to look into it.

    Haven't said that, with the 1.8.4 release, you can do some
    of the things you
    want. If a topic becomes "obsolete", I would move it into
    state "closed".
    This makes the topic effectively read-only, so it will be
    obvious to people
    that they can't add comments to it.

    You can also modify the topic description / title to
    indicate it has become
    obsolete, and the URL of the topic that superseeds it.
    Likewise, the new
    topic can include URLs to the topic it has super-seeded.

    I know its not 100% what you asked for, but it is getting there.

    This feature will be available in the next release of
    Codestriker.
