Today’s all-new release of RBTools 0.7.6 comes with over a dozen improvements, from Mercurial and Perforce fixes to new Team Foundation Server capabilities to automation enhancements.

We’ve improved RBTools’s behavior when running in a non-interactive console, allowed
rbt api-get to be used outside of a source tree, and made it easier to work with paginated responses in the Python API.
Performance has been improved when looking up repositories on ClearCase and Subversion.
These are just some of the improvements made in RBTools 0.7.6. For the complete list, see the release notes.
