this new SonarLint version enables any changes in the Quality Profile configured in SonarQube for your project to be synced in near real-time to the IDE so that only relevant issues are reported by SonarLint in your code; this functionality is enabled without any actions required from you, just make sure you’ve configured the connected mode for your solution.
We’ve also made further improvements to our rule descriptions; some time ago we introduced a new format for rule descriptions, and in this month’s release we’ve been working to help you easily understand and act on the noncompliant/compliant code examples : we’ve added code diff highlighting between non-compliant and compliant code examples in our rule descriptions:
The code diff highlighting is currently only available for a selection of rules - it will be progressively extended to more and more rules.
Finally, I’d like to mention that we’ve enhanced and moved all SonarLint documentation contents to a central location: https://docs.sonarsource.com/sonarlint/visual-studio/. You can read more about this change here.
You can find the release notes on GitHub.
