Hello VSCode users!

I’m pleased to announce the release of SonarLint for VSCode 2.1.1. The main new feature is the ability to detect AWS secrets into your project files, helping you to avoid leaking them into your SCM:

Those rules are enabled by default, but you can disable them in the rules configuration settings:


We are eager to receive feedback on those rules, and more will come in future versions.

Other notable improvements of this release:

  • 10 new Java rules, better Java 16 support, many bug fixes and improvements
  • Bug fixes and improvements for PHP analysis
  • Faster and more accurate analysis for Python medium-sized projects

We hope you will enjoy this new version!
