SonarLint for Eclipse 1.3 Released

SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of SonarLint for Eclipse version 1.3.

With this new version, SonarLint is automatically activated on your projects. This means that as soon as you modify a Java, JavaScript or PHP file, you will automatically benefit from feedback given by SonarLint.

Dependency on the update site has also been removed. SonarLint now embeds the Java, JavaScript and PHP analysers. This speeds up the first analysis and allows to have offline rule documentation:

SLE-1.3_RuleDesc

This also allows to package, distribute and install SonarLint without requiring an Internet connection – which can be convenient in some corporate environments.

As a side note, two features were dropped: the “NOSONAR” quick fix, that was too controversial, and the “Full project analysis”, that is a more complexe feature provided by SonarQube.

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

Have fun with SonarLint !
