Release Notes for 6/21/2012

Here are the notes for this week’s release on CodePlex:

Pull Requests

  • We now support the ability to conduct pull requests in Git and Mercurial across arbitrary branches in your project. No forks necessary! If you’re on a small team of contributors, this is a great way to conduct code reviews for changes to your project.
  • We now support e-mail notifications to be delivered whenever a comment is added to a pull request or line of code pertaining to a pull request. A checkbox for subscribing now appears at the bottom of all pull requests. You can manage your subscriptions by editing your profile.

Bug Fixes

  • Updated the various change subscription details page to reflect our newer UI theme.
  • Changed the placement of horizontal scrollbar when viewing diffs of pull requests and commits to be inline with the code.
  • Fixed various issues around interacting with the new diff viewer that we introduced last week. Do let us know if you have any feedback on the new diff viewer.
