Sonar Community Highlights, October 21 - October 27

Hello Sonar Community!

Happy (almost) Halloween! Ann has continued her “spooky” Slack handle escalation. Last week she was “Mother-Ann-Law” and this week she has been “We need to talk”. Leith, meanwhile, switched to “LEITHal”.

I remain unconvinced.

Some of you may have noticed new badges popping up on your profiles. We love it when users help each other, and we’re trying to be more intentional about acknowledging when it happens. There’s more to come on this topic, but know already how much we appreciate you!

It’s been yet another busy week in the Sonar Community! Like every week we want to spend some time saying thanks to everyone who prompted interesting discussions and gave us feedback on Sonar products that will help us continuously improve.


  • @CuiMaldonado pointed out that SonarCloud is warning about a deprecated external issues report format that we haven’t published the successor to. That’s coming next week. Thanks for nudging us along.



Rule Improvements:

Language Improvements

  • Kudos to @galit who asked if we support the CCAC Compiler from MetaWare Development Toolkit for C and C++ analysis. Right now we don’t (it might be very simple), but for now we’ll continue to track requests at CPP-4764

Once more, we extend our thanks to everyone mentioned here - and those we may have missed - for their efforts in strengthening this community and enhancing our Sonar products.

Please leave your own recognitions below – whether for another community member or a SonarSourcer who assisted you this week. If there’s someone you think should be acknowledged in next week’s roundup, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Colin, Ann and Leith
