SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of Sonar 1.5.

Sonar leverages well-known tools such as Checkstyle, PMD, Findbugs, Cobertura, Clover and JavaNCSS to provide an integrated and easy to use quality management platform.

What makes Sonar unique is it capabilities to :

  1. Present a project portfolio view to quickly get an insight of its health
  2. Drill down recursively to projects, modules, packages, classes and view the code with different perspectives (code coverage, coding rule violations)
  3. Add a time dimension to all metrics
  4. Create new metrics from the basic ones

Sonar integrates seamlessly the maven tools ecosystem and so any continuous integration environment.

The latest release is now available here :
