SonarLint for Eclipse 1.2 Released

SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of SonarLint for Eclipse version 1.2.

With this new version, you won’t be able to miss again any new issue that you’ve just introduced in your code – what we call the “leak” and what every developer should really care about to not introduce new technical debt. SonarLint for Eclipse 1.2 keeps track of the time when an issue was introduced, and displays all the issues sorted by this date:


Note that if you are upgrading from a previous version of SonarLint for Eclipse, we advise you to reset the perspective in Eclipse so that the “Date” column appears as expected in the “SonarLint Issues” view (or you will have to do it manually).

The other new feature of this version is the “Mute” quick-fix available on issues. If an issue seems to be a false-positive or if you feel that the code was written on purpose, this quick-fix will add a “NO-SONAR” comment in your code so that the issue does not bother any longer:


This quick-fix is obviously also available from the list of issues in the “SonarLint Issues” view, and it is working for every language currently supported by SonarLint for Eclipse (Java, JavaScript, PHP).


For more information, have a look to the release note or visit the dedicated SonarLint for Eclipse web site.

Have fun with SonarLint !
