JCR 0.7.2.1 released

JCR 0.7.2.1 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 large 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.

This version is a patch release to allow version 0.7.2 to be installed successfully despite subsequent (incompatible) changes to third party libraries installed via easy_install. Symptoms of incompatible libraries included failure of JCR to start successfully, or the browser being redirected endlessly to the login page.

Note: there is no need to install this release if you already have a functioning 0.7.2 installation - there are no functional differences between the two versions.

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
