Sonar 2.13 in screenshots

by simon brandhof|

    The Sonar team is proud to announce the release of Sonar 2.13. This new version includes 60 improvements, bug-fixes and also some new features that we believe are worth stopping your daily work for a couple of minutes to check out : ability to create manual reviews / violations anywhere in the code, ability to create action plans and an extended search engine.

    Extended search engine

    The search engine will now return not only projects but also modules, package and files. A picture is worth a thousand words :

    Add a review on any piece of code

    Whenever a quality defect is detected "manually", the person who detected it has the ability to inject a violation directly into Sonar:

    The related violation is then displayed within the source code and will be accounted for in metrics after the next analysis of the project:

    Action plans

    Action plans can be created to group reviews together.

    An action plan can be associated to each violation

    And then it is possible to review progress in a widget of a dashboard

    Hotpots 2.0

    The previous release allowed to use hotspot widgets in its own dashboards (see Sonar 2.12 in screenshots). It's now possible to customize, rename or even delete the default dashboard named "Hotspots".

    Time now to give a try to the new version and to read the installation or upgrade guides.
