Hi guys,

Codestriker 1.5.0 has just been released, which may interest those 
people that use CVS, and are interested in performing code reviews within 
their engineering teams.

Codestriker is a Perl CGI script that is used for performing code 
reviews in a collaborative fashion, as opposed to sending patches and 
comments using unstructured emails.   Authors create code review topics, the 
nominated reviewers being automatically notified by email. Reviewers then 
submit comments against the code on a per-line basis, and can view comments 
submitted by the other reviewers as they are created.

Special support is given for submitting "diffs", which can be viewed in 
plain text mode or side-by-side coloured diff mode.  If configured with CVS 
integration, you can also view the contents of a file in its entire original 
form, and the proposed contents of a file after the review has been 
committed, complete with colour-coded changes.  There is also simple 
integration with a bug-tracking system, such as Bugzilla, which records which 
bugs are addressed by the particular topic.
