Beta for Code Collaborator 5.0 Arriving Soon
Develop | Posted March 20, 2009

The next major release of Code Collaborator is version 5.0. The beta builds will be published starting in early April, so it won't be long now.

You might be wondering: "Why bother with upgrading? Code Collaborator version 4.0 is working just fine."

While it's true that the current version is a great product, version 5.0 adds a large number of new features that extend the capabilities of Code Collaborator and make it even easier to use.

We put together a list of the Top 12 Reasons to Upgrade to Code Collaborator 5.0, and I would encourage you to take a look at that list. But let me quickly give you my own personal top 3 new features:

Support for additional types of files. Code Collaborator 5.0 will have built-in support for a variety of materials beyond just ASCII text files, including PDF documents, image files, and web pages. Click the screen snapshot to see an example of a PDF file being reviewed.

DocReview

Enhanced notification control. Code Collaborator provides a basic work flow during a code review. As a review participant, you receive notifications during that work flow. In version 5.0, you get control over exactly which events during a review (comments from others, new file versions, etc.) cause you to receive a notification.

Notify

Prev/Next File in the Diff Viewer. It seems like such a small thing, but it makes a big difference. When you are examining the changes in a file you can now switch to the previous or next file in the review without having to go back to the Review Summary screen.
