In this release, we've focused on improving the code analysis capabilities and extended our support for coding standards, including MISRA and Joint Strike Fighter (see New and Updated Code Analysis Rules for additional information.

This is a minor update to C/C++test DTP Engine. See the release notes for 10.3.0 for additional information.

New and Updated Code Analysis Rules

Rule IDHeader
CODSTA-MCPP-07Prefer lambdas over std::bind, std::bind1st and std::bind2nd
CODSTA-MCPP-08_aPrefer 'auto' to explicit type names in variable declarations
CODSTA-MCPP-08_bPrefer 'auto' to explicit type names for function return types
CODSTA-MCPP-09Declare functions 'noexcept' if they will not emit exceptions
CODSTA-MCPP-11_a_cpp11Use constexpr to declare const variables whenever possible
CODSTA-MCPP-11_b_cpp11Use constexpr to declare functions whenever possible
CODSTA-MCPP-14Avoid Overloading on Forwarding References

Assumptions (limitations) made by functions should be documented in the function's preamble
JSF-071_c A class's virtual functions shall not be invoked from any of its constructors
JSF-071.1 A class's virtual functions shall not be invoked from any of its constructors
JSF-071.1_bA class's virtual functions shall not be invoked from its destructor
JSF-119Functions shall not call themselves, either directly or indirectly
MISRA2004-16_2Functions shall not call themselves, either directly or indirectly
MISRA2008-7_5_4Functions should not call themselves, either directly or indirectly

Updates to the RuleWizard Module

The following nodes and properties have been added to RuleWizard:

  • IsMoveAssignmentOperator (true for move assignment operator)
  • IsCopyAssignmentOperator (true for copy assignment operator)
  • HasDefaultValue property (true for function parameters with default value)
  • IsDeclInCommaList property (true for variable declared in a comma-separated list of declarators)
  • 'Vacuous destructor call' node (represents explicit destructor call for simple type or class that doesn't have one)
  • NewDeclaration node (represents declaration of a new operator)
  • DeleteDeclaration node (represents declaration of a delete operator)

See RuleWizard 10.3.1 User's Guide for more details.

Additional Updates and Enhancements

  • Improved Flow Analysis execution.
  • Updates to Japanese localization.

    Release notes for 10.3.0 are missing from the entire website. How do I know if I want to upgrade from 9.5 to 10.3? Incremental updates like 10.3.1 don't show me feature additions.

    1. Thank you for your feedback. We have added the release notes for the version 10.3.0.
