CodeStream 7.0: Code Reviews in your IDE, even on uncommitted code and WIP; Live View lets you see what your team is working on, and avoid merge conflicts
April 3, 2020

Request code review in your IDE: You can now request a code review from the “+” menu. CodeStream will package up all of the changes on your current branch and allow you to decide which files to submit for review.
