SonarLint for Visual Studio 1.2 Released

SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of SonarLint for Visual Studio version 1.2. As a reminder, SonarLint is a Visual Studio 2015 extension that provides on-the-fly feedback to developers on any new bug or quality issue injected into C# code

In this version 1.2 we focused on improving the user experience by adding code fading and fixes. Code fading makes some issues less obtrusive, and code fixes are concrete suggestions for solving specific issues in the code. This means that when an analyzer identifies an issue in the code, the IDE can propose an automatic fix for it. We’ve added fixes for 17 rules, and the best part is that the user can choose to fix all issues of the same type all at once for the whole solution, which can immensely speed up paying down technical debt.

For more information about this new version, read the following blog post: SonarLint for Visual Studio 1.2.0 Brings Code Fixes to the IDE and release note.
