Home » Static Analysis » Announcing Klocwork 2017

I’m pleased to announce the release of Klocwork 2017! I’ll get to the MISRA, Visual Studio, and analysis accuracy improvements below but we’ll start with a brand-new way of figuring out which issues to work on first.

Anyone that’s used any static analysis tool knows that there’s potential for a long list of issues that could take a while to understand, prioritize, and fix. With SmartRank in Klocwork 2017 there’s nothing to figure out – we do the work for you.

Prioritize defects fast with SmartRank

With the SmartRank defect recommendation engine, developers are given a prioritized list of which issues should be corrected first, to have the most (positive) effect on quality and security in the field. Using a set of different factors from the Klocwork analysis engine itself, SmartRank calculates a ranking that a detected issue is a true issue, guiding developers to work on the most important issues. It’s literally as easy as clicking a checkbox in the Klocwork Review Portal, giving you a list of SmartRank recommended issues to view and fix.

In addition to the above, we’ve also made improvements to the Visual Studio extension which combines desktop and server views, upgraded language support for C++ 11 and C# 6.0, and improved the accuracy of the analysis engine by up to 10 percent over the previous release.
