JCR 0.6.0rc1 released - code reviews in style!

The first release candidate for JCR version 0.6.0 is now available.

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

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.

Version 0.6.0 is a complete rewrite of JCR, using more modern libraries and frameworks. The user interface has remained mostly the same as previous versions, although there have been many usability enhancements. New or improved features include two-level sorting in all tables, indicators for which files you've already reviewed, and the ability for the owner to revert review projects to previous states (allowing tasks that previously required the administrator).

JCR now uses easy_install for installation, supports Sqlite as an additional database (not recommended for production use), and will install a sample project if you want to get a quick idea of how JCR works. Getting a minimal running installation should now take a maximum of 7 easy steps.

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
