SonarSource has announced the release of version 3.0 of the Sonar code quality assurance tool. New features allow users to quickly spot quality violations and ascertain the test coverage of new code. Sonar 3.0 also introduces an integrated code review workflow and a system for detecting duplicate code across multiple projects, itemised by programming language.

Other features include a Sonar plugin for the Eclipse IDE, LDAP-based authentication for the system, and personalised web dashboards with widgets for each user. All in all, Sonar 3.0 comes with 40 improvements and a number of additional bug fixes.

Sonar itself is licensed under the LGPLv3 and includes plugins for the C, C#, Java and PHP programming languages. Plugins for web development and the Flex and Groovy frameworks are also included, as is the ability to integrate with Atlassian JIRA and Jenkins. Community plugins enable support for Python, JavaScript, Pascal and Delphi.

Commercial options – SonarSource Professional Edition and SonarSource Enterprise Edition – include various levels of support and plugins for PL/SQL, COBOL, Visual Basic 6 as well as other features. These versions are available from €12,500 (£10,200) and €50,000 (£40,900) a year.

Sonar 3.0 can be downloaded from the company's web site and more information on the new features is also available. A detailed list of changes can be found in the release notes on the Sonar open source project site.
