Review Board logo The free code review software, Review Board has been released as version 1.0. The tool which was created and used in the development of VMWare makes it easier for teams of programmers to evaluate changes in software source code.

The goal of Review Board is to spot errors and bugs in software before software is released. The tool offers the ability to compare code across multiple repositories on multiple servers, allows developers to request their code be reviewed, shows reviewers a sophisticated graphical diff view and allows them to comment on the changes.
