SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of 7.2 today.
I’m not going to go into the features here because we’ve spent some time crafting a new announcement format: https://www.sonarqube.org/sonarqube-7-2/
What I am going to list here are the technical details that aren’t included in that new announcement:
- There are four different packages now: 1 for each edition. That means that upgrading gets a lot simpler if you’re on a commercial edition: just download the right one and you’re ready to go!
- All bundled plugins are in the plugins directory by default. So don’t just blindly copy over all the plugins from your old installation, or you’ll end up with multiple copies of your analyzers and startup will fail.
- There’s no Docker image (on purpose, we didn’t forget!) for this version.
- For faster future upgrades, we’ve added documentation on how to configure your Elasticsearch storage paths to reside outside $SONARQUBE_HOME. Starting from 7.2 we’ll only drop and rebuild the ES data when it’s really necessary (versus always, as with previous versions).
