Klocwork 2019 Release Highlights:

Analysis engine and compiler improvements

Rogue Wave have improved support for the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler to support modern language features and defect detection for C++ 11, C++14, and C++17 both locally, using MS Visual Studio, and remote server analysis.

Improved Microsoft Visual Studio Support

The Visual Studio Extension now supports analysis of C++ 11, C++14, and C++17 language features so you can find new defects locally on your desktop. For more information, see Supported C++ language specifications

Improved cross-version support for builds

Klocwork 2019 has further expanded cross-version support for builds, up to a full major release back. This means you can load Klocwork 2018.x builds into Klocwork 2019 without having to import or migrate data. For large organizations, this feature provides flexibility by allowing you to upgrade the Portal and Server to take advantage of improvements, while still analyzing some of your projects with a previous version of Klocwork. For more information, see Cross-version support for builds.

Introduction of the Build Tools package

Rogue Wave now offer a lightweight Klocwork Build Tools package which can be deployed on all supported platforms. For more information, see Installing the Build Tools package.

  • Clang

For the full list of supported C/C++ compilers, see C/C++ compilers supported for build integration.
