SonarLint for Visual Studio Code 1.16 Released

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce that SonarLint for Visual Studio Code 1.16 has just been published.

This release features a significant version bump for the Python, JavaScript and TypeScript analyzers, and updates for Java and PHP, including:

  • 44 new rules for Python, support for Python 3.8, improved accuracy through use of built-in types, count module-level docstrings as comments
  • 31 JavaScript rules, now also available for TypeScript, and a new ESlint-based engine
  • 14 new rules for Java, 9 of them specific to tests; fewer false positives
  • improved accuracy and fewer false positives for PHP

See the release notes for the full details.
