SonarLint for Visual Studio 7.2 - Instant Quality Profile sync, better code examples display

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.

This release also improves the precision of many existing C# and VB.NET rules, and adds new detections for JavaScript and TypeScript.

Finally, I’d like to mention that we’ve enhanced and moved all SonarLint documentation contents to a central location: You can read more about this change here.

You can find the release notes on GitHub.
