Crucible 3.7 release notes
Today's release of Crucible 3.7 includes some great improvements for branch reviews, as well as better support for Git and Mercurial.
Branch reviews are now automatically updated
Since Crucible 3.6 you've been able to easily create a review for the particular repository branch you've been working on.
Now, with Crucible 3.7, your branch review is quickly and automatically updated whenever new commits are made to the repository branch. All review participants get notified and are able to resume their reviews immediately. Just remember to create a review for your branch first!

Create a branch review from the activity stream
You can now create a branch review directly from the activity stream.
Once your changeset is indexed and visible in the activity stream, just click on the cog and choose Create review for branch. You'll see the option to add a branch to the review.
Other branch review improvements
We think you'll like these other improvements for branch reviews too. You can remove files from branch reviews and they won't be added again on next update, unless there were further changes to those files. And performance has been improved too – adding content to a review is now up to 10x faster. Read more about Branch reviews.
Better support for Git and Mercurial
We've improved Crucible's support for the two most popular distributed version control systems on the market, Git and Mercurial.
Not only have we added support for Git 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 and Mercurial 3.x., but our intensive testing has revealed that some Git repositories are being indexed up to 8% faster, compared with Git 1.9.1. See Supported platforms.
The latest versions of Git and Mecurial have fixes for the recently discovered CVE-2014-9390 vulnerability. Crucible is not directly affected by this vulnerability, but we recommend upgrading all your Git and Mercurial clients to the latest release. See Atlassian update for Git and Mercurial vulnerability.
Deprecated support for Internet Explorer 9
Support for IE 9 is deprecated, and will be removed in April 2015. See End of Support Announcements for Crucible.
Removed support for Firefox 3.6 and 4.0
Support for Firefox 3.6 and 4.0 has been removed in Crucible 3.7. See Supported platforms.
Removed support for Safari 4 and 5
Support for Safari 4 and 5 has been removed in Crucible 3.7. See Supported platforms.
