SonarQube 9.0 released

Hi all,

SonarSource is proud to announce the release of SonarQube 9.0, which introduces smooth setup of your Bitbucket cloud projects, quality gate status on GitHub branches, and much more. Details in the official announcement.

In addition, there are a few other items to note in the release:

  • Java 11 is required for SonarQube scanners. Use of Java 8 is no longer supported.
  • Internet Explorer 11 is no longer supported (SONAR-14387).
  • We removed the JavaScript custom rule API, which was deprecated since Sept. 2019. If you use a plugin with this API to implement JavaScript custom rules, we suggest writing rules for ESLint and using external issues import. (SONAR-14928).
  • We’ve also dropped elements of the plugin API that were deprecated in 6.x versions. If your plugins are still using them, it’s time to update (SONAR-14925, SONAR-14885).

Also, Kotlin analysis now goes deeper to find more issues. This enhancement results in an expected increase of the analysis duration.

You’ll find more details in the upgrade notes and full details in the release notes. Please open new threads for any questions you have about these or other features.

As usual, download is available at Docker images are also available on Docker Hub.
