SmartBear Software has released a new version of Collaborator, the leading peer code and document review tool that helps development, testing and management teams work together to produce high quality code, applications and services. The latest release of Collaborator adds a new integration with GitLab and has enhanced existing integrations with Atlassian’s Bitbucket and GitHub. Now Collaborator is the only peer code and document review tool that integrates with the three largest repository management solutions: GitHub, Atlassian’s Bitbucket and GitLab.
This new functionality allows users that desire a more robust peer review process to automatically create Collaborator code reviews any time a pull request is created. In addition to creating the Collaborator review, the pull request can be merged or the branch deleted once the Collaborator review completes. SmartBear also continues to focus on Collaborator’s document review capabilities by adding pan, zoom and scroll features. Document review users can quickly and easily zoom in on files by using their mouse scroll wheel and then pan around the document by clicking and dragging. The ability to create customizable syntax highlighting schemes that allow for unique keyword identification outside of what is offered by default in Collaborator has also been added.
