[NEW RELEASE] Mutation Analysis 1.5

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to announce a new release v1.5 of the mutation-analysis plugin.

New Features

  • Make Issue type configurable (thanks to @yonpah for suggesting the improvement) (GH-35)

For all mutation-operators there are now two falvors of the rules:

  • bug (as before)
  • code smell (new)

That way projects may choose in their quality profiles, how to treat surviving mutants. Use the “bug” flavor for more critical software (“every potential bug is treated as a bug”) and the “code smell” flavor for less critical software projects.

Although possible, you shouldn’t activate both flavors in the same profile.


it’s compatible with versions >6.7.x and 7.x. (built against the 6.7 API) incl. version 7.9.x

Hi Gerald,

The procedures have changed a little since you last released a version, I guess. I need you to submit a PR on https://github.com/SonarSource/sonar-update-center-properties. Details in the docs I linked above.


Hi Ann,
I opened a PR a week ago (see updated announcemet).
Is someone actively monitoring these or does it happen on request (i.e. in here)?


Hi Gerald,

If you had made me a reviewer (ganncamp) I’d have gotten a notification, but no one actively monitors this. That’s why the updated procedure asks for a link here to your PR. Could you either add a link here or make me a reviewer?


Hi Ann,

hm, I don’t see how I could assign/request a review of the PR as documented by github (https://help.github.com/en/articles/requesting-a-pull-request-review see picture below)

Anyway, here is the link to the PR https://github.com/SonarSource/sonar-update-center-properties/pull/40

Hi Gerald,

I’ve requested a change.


I see you’ve made the change. I’ve updated the Marketplace.
