SonarLint for VS Code 4.5 - Share Connected Mode setup among contributors

Hello VS Code users,

The release 4.5 of SonarLint for VS Code is out!

The new version of SonarLint for VS Code empowers teams’ collaboration by introducing the possibility of sharing Connected Mode setup among contributors. We identified a real friction point regarding the Connected Mode configuration for teams. Each contributor needed to individually setup a connection on their initiative.

We simplified the process by giving the possibility to share the binding of a project in order to spread the connection to other team members. It will automatically generate a configuration file at the project root that will need to be committed to the repository.

When standalone users import the project with the SonarLint Connected Mode configuration, they will be able to use it and automatically bind the project.

On Python, we added 14 rules. If you want more information, you can check the release notes here and here.

Regarding JS/TS, we added 4 accessibility rules. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that we are dropping the support of NodeJS v16, so please update your version if needed, you can check the announcement here.

We also introduced Java 21 and new sustainability rules.

You can find the release notes here.

Thank you for your continued support!
