Lucent Sky AVM 3.7 released
September 01, 2016
As the second part of a series of performance-focused updates, Lucent Sky AVM 3.7 brings performance improvements to the analysis engine. Improved caching and parallel processing algorithms were added to the contextual analysis engine, and analysis performance will be noticeably improved on most applications. Web UI also received several improvements, such as result suppression functionalities and source code archive validation.
Updates in Lucent Sky AVM 3.7 include:
- Performance improvements on contextual analysis engine - Improved caching and parallel processing algorithms were added to the contextual analysis engine. Contextual analysis performance is greatly improved on all supported tech stacks, but will be most noticeable on .NET and Java applications with more than (roughly) 100K lines of code.
- Result suppression on Web UI - Result suppression rules can be automatically generated on the Web UI, and then imported as a Rule Package. A future update will further streamline the process.
- Source code archive validation on Web UI - The source code archive will be validated before being uploaded to CLEAR Engine to detect common issues such as invalid archive file. In addition, CLEAR Engine also return more precise error messages regarding archive errors.
- Minor reports and UI improvements - Any customized settings, such as using a custom rule package, will be shown on the report and on the Web UI.
- Bug fixes
