In this release, we've focused on enhancing code analysis capabilities and extending support for environments.

Extended Support for Compilers

  • Support for Green Hills Software Compiler for PPC 2017.1.x

Extended Support for Platforms

  • Support for Windows Server 2016

Extended Support for IDEs

  • Support for Visual Studio 2017
    Note: C++test requires specific Visual Studio Workloads to be installed with Visual Studio 2017; see IDE Support for details.

Enhanced Flow Analysis

You can now configure Flow Analysis to analyze a list of functions and files from outside the scope (see Flow Analysis for details).

New Code Analysis Rules

Rule IDHeader
GLOBAL-UNIQUETYPEA class, union or enum name (including qualification, if any) shall be a unique identifier
GLOBAL-UNUSEDFUNCEvery defined function with external linkage shall be used at least once
MISRA2008-0_1_10_bEvery defined function with external linkage shall be used
MISRA2008-2_10_41A class, union or enum name (including qualification, if any) shall be a unique identifier

1 The following rules have been removed and with the new rule MISRA2008-2_10_4 : MISRA2008-2_10_4_a, MISRA2008-2_10_4_b, MISRA2008-2_10_4_c
