Review Board
release-4.0.x
reviewboard

This covers the new multi-commit review request support, new
administration UI, read-only mode, integrations, extension improvements,
new APIs, bug fixes, and Python 3/Django 1.11 support.

This is pretty comprehensive, though there's still plenty of
behind-the-scenes changes that aren't covered (but which have been sent
by contributors). A special thank-you note has been added to the end.

Built the docs. Checked all links (only one is broken, and that's due to
currently missing Discord docs). Checked for build errors and spelling
errors.

    Do we really want to keep suggesting easy_install at this point?

    1. So here's the problem.

      If you installed via eggs already, they can take precedence over wheels. That means if someone tries to upgrade 3.0.x with eggs to 4.0 with wheels, they can end up with a mixed, broken environment.

      I'm not building eggs for Python 3, though, just 2.7. So any 3-based installs will definitely be using wheels from here on out. Given that, I'm willing to put up with the easy_install instructions for just a little longer, if it helps us get more beta testers. That's why there's the note below this.

    2. Sounds good.
