New features as of last week (1/19-1/23/2009)
* ReviewNotifier can now create its own scheduled task. ReviewNotifier schedule number_of_minutes (jerryju)
* For Vista users there is now a gadget that shows user's outstanding code reviews and links to the Malevich web site (lucasshawn).
* There is now a way to invite mailing lists to participate in code reviews: review.exe cl --invite maillist. The mail list participants get a request to join the code review and can add themselves as reviewers by clicking on the link in the mail (sergeysolyanik).
* Firefox and Chrome were tested and made work. Chrome works REALLY well, Firefox has a small bug, but is usable (sergeysolyanik)
* Added support for skinning. See skinDirectory option in web.config. This allows integrating Malevich in the existing corporate tools infrastructure, add branding, etc (sergeysolyanik)

* Branching/merge/integration implemented in Perforce and TFS. The files are not actually uploaded (since the amount of uploaded code could be absolutely enormous), but the change list is shown, and it is possible to comment on it as a whole.

New features, 5/17

* Setup now supports Win7, Vista,  and Server 2008 R2 for the server-side installation. It also does several more checks to make sure that the platform is configured correctly. I consider setup to be a solid Beta now.

* TFS support in review.exe can recognize workspace and server based on the current directory.
