JCR 0.6.5rc1 released

JCR 0.6.5rc1 is now available.

JCR is a web application for performing and managing formal code reviews. It can be used for reviews of any type of source code, although it has some special smarts for reviewing Java projects, and for managing large code reviews.

JCR has many features to make code reviews as fast and convenient as possible. These include fast navigation through files and comments, several ways of presenting comments for inspection, drill-down into referenced Java classes (for Java reviews only, of course), and the ability to view comments made on the same file in earlier reviews.

The main enhancements in 0.6.5rc1 are the addition of syntax highlighting for most types of file, and other changes to the file view and review pages to make them more useable. There is also now a way to set the review priority on many files at a time, which should speed up readying new projects for review. And finally, there is now an option to provide your own review decision types (the actions in the dropdown on the comment dialogs) as an alternative to using the built-in JCR list. And of course there have been a few bug fixes.

You can download the new release from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=153959, or check out the home page at http://jcodereview.sourceforge.net/.

Enjoy ............................. JD
