A new version is ready!

Issue 12 - Q4 2014

Happy new year 2015 from SonarSource! Looking back on the last couple months, we have been busy. SonarQube 4.5 has been released and it now computes the technical debt as a core feature of the platform, followed closely by SonarQube 4.5.1 which is the new long term supported version (LTS). We have also released new code quality and security rules and have made various improvements across all languages including Java, Cobol, C/C++, C# and Javascript.
