    • “Reliability” characteristic, based on “bugs”
    • “Security” characteristic, based on “vulnerabilities”
    • “Maintainability” characteristic, based on “code smells”
    • Purpose is to highlight operational risk while remaining committed to manage the technical debt of the code (the default quality gate highlights
  • The “old” measure drilldown page is replaced by a brand new “Measures” project page
    • More usable and reactive
    • Offers various visualizations (Treemaps, Bubble charts, Timelines) on top of drilldown capability
  • Increased vertical scalability, performances and stability of the platform
    • Report processing by the Compute Engine (i.e. background tasks) is now done in a dedicated process
    • This processing can be multi-threaded to increase the throughput of the Compute Engine
And obviously as usual, this version comes with lots of bug fixes and other small improvements.
