  • Diff Viewer contents now synchronizes with the Overlay / Separate mode of Review Screen. In Overlay mode of review materials, Diff Viewer will display overall changes made to the file as specified by the Default Revision Comparison of Diff Viewer setting, while in Separate mode it will display changes made by a particular changeset. (COLLAB-4975)

  • Diff Viewer's Chat section now has a new user-list filter that specifies whether to display comments and defects from all participants of just from the selected participant. (COLLAB-1127)

    User filter in Chat section
  • Existing review participants will be retained upon changing group if they belong to new group. (COLLAB-5246)
  • Existing values of custom fields will be retained upon changing review template if the custom field exists in both templates. (COLLAB-3815)
  • Adding Git commits from GUI Client, Command-Line Client, Eclipse Plug-in or Visual Studio Extension will also add part of Git log information to build properly ordered list of changes on Collaborator server side. This will ensure that in Review Screen and Diff Viewer Git commits are displayed in the same order as in the Git log. To use this functionality you will need to update both server and clients. (COLLAB-4997, COLLAB-2717, COLLAB-1897)
  • Review Screen, Diff Viewer, Eclipse Plug-in and Visual Studio Extension now display Subversion, Perforce, TFS and RTC atomic changelists in chronological order (from older to newer), regardless the order in which they have been uploaded to review. (COLLAB-4002, COLLAB-3980, COLLAB-2717, COLLAB-1897)
  • New "Automatically create new groups" setting defines whether to create new groups automatically during LDAP/AD group synchronization or just map users to existing groups. Another new setting "Automatic group creation filter" specifies what exactly groups should be created automatically: if group FQDN matches the specified regular expression it will be created. Otherwise it will be excluded. (COLLAB-4238, COLLAB-4239)
  • Ability to use Oracle Text component instead of regular expression query on Oracle databases for full-text search from Web Client. This component is disabled by default, administrators can enable it on the Oracle side or through Collaborator admin UI. (COLLAB-5356)
  • New Default Scale for Documents in Diff Viewer user setting which specifies the default zoom level when reviewing documents. (COLLAB-3862)
  • New Default send to state and Default wait state user settings that allow specifying the default notification level for Sent To and Wait actions. Administrators can also specify these settings for the entire group via command-line and JSON API. (COLLAB-2911)

Discontinued Support

With the release of Collaborator 11.5, GitHub Polling integration becomes deprecated. This type of integration implies polling the GitHub server at regular time intervals to retrieve information about changes in repositories. This approach has certain time lag and has become obsolete now. We highly recommend using webhook-based GitHub integration type instead of GitHub Polling. Transfer prompt will be displayed on the Remote System Integration page of Admin UI.
