Crucible 3.9 release notes
Today's release of Crucible 3.9 brings a new way to see comment activity on reviews, and a raft of performance improvements.
When you go to a Crucible review, you want to quickly see the recent comments from your team. That's just what the Review Activity shows you, so now it's easy to catch up on a review, or to find outdated or hidden comments.
Click Activity at the top right of the review (or use the keyboard shortcut 'shift' + ']'):
The bubble beside the Activity link shows the number of unread comments.
To see the comment in context just click it (or press the 'return' key) to go to the file where the comment was made:
We think you'll notice a much faster experience with Crucible!
Review page load time
We've introduced permissions caching to speed up the loading of a review. The cache lifespan is request only.
In testing, load time for a review with about 500 comments on a single FRX diminished from 9s to a little over a second.
Project Review Dashboard load time
The Reviews tab for a project now loads faster than ever!
We've optimized the calculation of the average number of files per review in the 'Statistics' section, and now only display the unread comments count for the reviews that you are participating in. Further, the maximum open reviews label has been removed.
Faster searching by review PermaId
We've tweaked searching for review comments by the review PermaId to take fuller advantage of database indexes, resulting in a very useful performance gain.

The bundled Oracle JDBC driver is now version 12cR1.
