It's my pleasure to announce the release of git-review 2.3.0 and
follow-up fix version 2.3.1. These are the corresponding release
notes since the previous release:


Bug Fixes

  * Improved version string parsing for Git in order to no longer
    break on Mac OSX/Darwin systems (story 2010002).


Upgrade Notes

  * Python 3.5 is no longer supported.

  * Git 2.10.0 or later is required as git-review now needs the
    ``--no-show-signature`` option for git-log.

Bug Fixes

  * Git's log.ShowSignature option is now supported. Previously,
    setting it would confuse git-review into thinking there were
    twice as many changes to push.

  * OpenSSH has deprecated its use of scp/rcp protocol in favor of
    SFTP, which the embedded Apache mina-sshd in widely-deployed
    Gerrit versions does not yet support. The default officially
    changed in OpenSSH 9.0 (some distributions, such as Fedora and
    CentOS, switched their default behavior to this as early as
    OpenSSH 8.7 or 8.8), leading to a "subsystem request failed on
    channel 0" error during commit-msg hook retrieval. Now git-review
    will attempt to detect whether scp's -O option is available to
    force use of the legacy scp/rcp protocol, and apply it if so.
    Future git-review versions may change the fallback behavior once
    an SFTP subsystem is implemented and available for a new Gerrit

As always, the latest version of git-review is available from PyPI:
