A new version is ready!

Issue 21 - Q1 2017

New year comes with new features for SonarQube and SonarLint, and we are glad to present them to you. It is also worth noticing that we are now a Microsoft Visual Studio partner.

SonarQube 6.2

The beginning of 2017 saw the release of SonarQube 6.2, which comes with significant changes, both to the interface and underlying mechanisms to streamline and improve the user experience including a new “Projects” page, an enhanced “Issues” page, the rating support in Quality Gates and more.
