Where can I find the release notes for a language plugin, say Java?

How/where can I get the release notes for language plugins like Java or Python?

The “What’s New” page helpfully says “3 new rules!” (https://www.sonarqube.org/sonarqube-7-7/) and then links to the rules database at https://rules.sonarsource.com/java which has no way to filter by release.

I tried this query on the issue tracker but it’s contains a lot of noise:

Hidden on the download page https://www.sonarqube.org/downloads/ of sonarqube 6.7, there is a link to the release notes generated by JIRA. There, I can configure a report for 7.7 which looks better:

Is there something similar for the languages? We would really like to see the new rules before we upgrade to decide how urgent/dangerous an upgrade is.


Hi Aaron,

First off, thanks for your first posting on our Community Forum! :sunglasses:

Regarding the language updates, have you checked out the product news website? There you can get valuable details including new rule specifics. For example, here’s the product news for an update to the Java analyzer.

Lastly, you can subscribe to the product news via email or RSS to get notified as new releases occur.

to extend Clint’s answer, you see all details in Sonarsource Jira, e.g.
the release notes of the upcoming version 5.2 of the Sonar Java Analyzer.
After creating an account, you may also use watches or votes for specific tickets.
Use the Jira comment feature only in exceptional cases, for discussion use this forum instead.
