FxCop 1.36 Released!
After what has to be the longest beta period for a product (after Gmail) - we've finally released the final version of FxCop 1.36.
I've talked in the past about some the improvements in this release, including:
200+ bug fixes that reduce noise, missing analysis and rule crashes
Support for analyzing anonymous methods and lambda expressions
New option for skipping analysis over tool generated code
Spell checker libraries now ship in the box
Changes in the way references are resolved and located
Better support for C++/CLI and the Compact Framework
Language 'friendly' API names in the UI and resolutions (ie Visual Basic syntax if running over a Visual Basic binary)
New globalization, design and usage rules
New rule for targeting specific versions of the Framework
Performance improvements that cut analysis by 2x and use half as much memory
Documentation that is now available on MSDN
This is a great release - download it, and feel free to head over to the Code Analysis forum to tell my old team what you think.
