What's New in CodeIt.Right v2.0

  • New (!) Instant Code Review feature - allows to run select set of rules in the background and get real-time code issues feedback to developers in the Visual Studio Editor.

  • New rule - Remove Unused Classes

  • (EE) Option to publish custom dictionary - Enterprise Edition introduces Shared dictionary (in addition to User dictionary). Shared dictionary can be published and distributed to all Analysis Module users

  • (EE)(Cmd) Added Auto Update parameter /RuleUpdate to pull published rules and profiles to a build server in a command line version only ("no Visual Studio") setup

  • (EE)(Cmd) Added "Project Configuration" parameter /projectConfiguration

  • (EE)(Cmd) Added "MailSubjectSuffix" for email in command line version

  • (EE)(Cmd) Email metrics report - enables command line version to distribute metrics report output via email; /sendto parameter now works with the /metrics parameter

  • (EE) Improved handing of non-unique RuleIds in Statistics.db - you will no longer get unhandled error dialog if use existing RuleId in your custom rule. Still a unique (GUID-based recommended) RuleId is required for custom rules

  • Profile Editor - Added filter for selected/unselected rules

  • Added Option to Require Exclude Comments. The date/time stamped comments show up within the Excluded -> Violations tab

  • Improved Auto Update - it no longer requires Admin permission to check for an update. It will only ask to elevate permissions if there is update found and you choose to install it.
  • Improved Auto Update mechanism - Introduce Update frequency option. For SE, PE and EE TCM choices are Manual/Every Month/Every Week(default), for EE AM Manual/Every Month/Every Week(default)/Every Day/Every Hour

  • Improved VS Debug windows (for the IDE version) and console (for the Cmd version) output - it now displays accurate numbers of issues found without excluded violations

  • Added option to "hard" exclude file/project. In the regular ("soft") exclude scenario, CodeIt.Right will still analyze the file/project and will show number of violations within the Excluded tab, not in the violations report. With "hard" exclude the file/project will be completely ignored during the analysis. Use "hard" excludes with caution - it is useful for CodeGen code that cannot be excluded using GeneratedCode attribute or regions but not recommended for regular source code as this may result in missed violations. 

  • Improved ASP.NET MVC support - now fully compatible with ASP.NET MVC 3 syntax

  • Improved Exclude file/project - these now store relative path instead of absolute - helps in a team environment when solution source folders differ on developer workstations

  • Tweaked UX and refreshed icons
