SonarQube C/C++/Objective C 3.12 Released

SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of the C/C++/Objective-C plugin version 3.12.

This new version provides the following 9 new rules:


Moreover, any Visual C++ project must now be analyzed with help of the SonarQube Scanner for MSBuild and so with a very minimalistic configuration effort. This should not be more complex than sequentially executing those three command lines :

MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner begin /k:project_key /n:project_name /v:project_version
/<output directory>

build-wrapper.exe --out-dir <output directory> msbuild /t:rebuild

MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner end

Please use SonarQube Scanner for MSBuild 2.1+ version to not face the following overhead when compiling your C++ projects: SONARMSBRU-193.


The build-wrapper for Linux, OS X and Windows are now embedded into the plugin and so can be directly downloaded from your SonarQube server once the plugin is installed :

  • http://MySonarQubeServer/static/cpp/ containing directory “build-wrapper-win-x86″ with files build-wrapper-win-x86-32.exe and build-wrapper-win-x86-64.exe
  • http://MySonarQubeServer/static/cpp/ containing directory “build-wrapper-macosx-x86″ with files build-wrapper-macosx-x86
  • http://MySonarQubeServer/static/cpp/ containing directory “build-wrapper-linux-x86″ with files build-wrapper-linux-x86-64 and build-wrapper-linux-x86-32


Please read the release notes for more information about all the other improvements and bug fixes part of this release. You can install or update it via the Update Center.
