CodeStream 7.4: New Blame Map and integration with VS Code Source Control
June 8, 2020

You signed up, added a teammate or two to kick the tires with, and are off to the collaboration races! Awesome. But what about the rest of the team? You can certainly head over to the Team tab and add them all, but CodeStream now also makes sure that the right people are brought into your discussions… even if they aren’t yet on CodeStream. When you create a codemark, CodeStream automatically mentions the person that most recently touched that code. But what if that person isn’t on CodeStream? With the check of a box, you can now send your comment via email.They can simply reply to the email to have their comment posted to CodeStream, and of course they can install CodeStream to participate from their IDE.

CodeStream 7.3: Update existing code reviews with additional code, right from your IDE
May 28, 2020

CodeStream’s 7.3 release simplifies your workflow around code reviews by allowing you to iterate within a single review, rather than stringing together a sequence of separate reviews. For example, if a teammate has left a number of comments, or even some change requests, on one of your code reviews, after you address those requests you can add the additional changes to the review (even if they haven’t been committed!) and ask your teammate to have another look. Rinse and release as needed until the review gets approved.
