Sonar 3.0 in screenshots

by simon brandhof|

    The Sonar team is proud to announce the release of Sonar 3.0.

    The team has been working for the last 2 years on Sonar 2.x versions, adding support for Continuous Inspection to manage Technical Debt. With Sonar 2.14, we felt that we had reach functional maturity for this support and that adding stability would make it a great candidate for a major release: Sonar 3.0.

    Along with the new version, SonarSource is also launching a new commercial plugin, the Developer Cockpit, which enables each developer to see his own contribution, and a new web site.

    But let's come back to the specifics of Sonar 3.0: this new version includes 40+ improvements and fixes 40 bugs, that are described below in screenshots:


    Enhanced Settings


    This was a highly demanded improvement to provide support for encryption of the database password :



    Documentation is available here.

    And we also added the masking functionality for passwords in the UI:


    along with enhanced UI for support of types of parameters


    and added information for licenses


    New TimeMachine Dashboard


    TimeMachine is now fully widgetized and provided as a default dashboard:


    Enhanced Management of Permissions


    The service has been improved by adding a search engine and improving the UI:


    Define Alert Thresholds on Boolean Metrics


    Support for alerts on boolean metrics has been added:


    New Metric: Number of Projects


    A new metric has been added that provides the number of projects. This is very useful when you look at an aggregation of projects (Views plugin) or at a developer's dashboard (new Developer Cockpit)



    Other changes that are more difficult to show in screenshots: Hide Empty Source Viewers and JaCoCo Exclusions for Java Projects.


    Time now to let you give a try to this version 3.0. Release notes are available in the download page. Please do not forget to read the installation or upgrade guides.
