CodeStream 10.7 – Proactively providing feedback when your teammates push code
March 9, 2021

CodeStream 10.7 allows you to review a teammate’s set of changes at any time, even without the author explicitly requesting a review. Catching mistakes or making suggestions early, often results in improved code quality. Rather than waiting on a developer to request a review, a manager or a colleague can now proactively jump in and review someone’s changes. Also added is the ability to review GitHub PR changes from a specific commit, range of commits, or since your last review.

February 9, 2021

CodeStream’s codemarks are annotations, discussions or instructions connected to a block of code.

And they can serve as mini reviews of the code, providing guidance and suggestions. Codemarks were created with flexibility in mind, but until now there was no way to indicate that the issue addressed in the codemark has been resolved. That changes with version 10.5.
