Spring is here, and so is a new Minor Release of Lucent Sky AVM - welcome to Lucent Sky AVM version 2203 MR. This release is headlined with support for Ruby and Scala applications, new features and improvements of dependency analysis, and the first preview of real-time intelligence. In fact, calling 2203 MR a Minor Release really doesn’t do it justice as it is packed with over 100 improvements and fixes. To learn more about this release, visit Lucent Sky AVM version 2203 release notes.
Dependency analysis, a form of software composition analysis, was introduced in Lucent Sky AVM in version 2103 MR. In the one year after, dependency analysis and update guidance have helped developers identify over 3 million vulnerable dependencies and update them to secure versions. In version 2203 MR, we are making further improvements to dependency analysis and update guidance.
SELECT ApplicationId FROM Dependencies WHERE Name = 'FooBar' AND Version <= '2.5.2', Lucent Sky AVM will identify all applications that contain a vulnerable version of the FooBar library.
Scala applications, as well as Java and Groovy applications built with sbt, are now supported. Ruby applications targeting Ruby 2 and Ruby 3 are also supported.
With real-time intelligence, Lucent Sky AVM uses localized machine learning and proprietary real-time data to more accurately identify vulnerable software dependencies, generate Instant Fixes and dependency update guidance, and automatically suppress false positives. Some features of real-time intelligence are only available in select markets or only available to customers in the Lucent Sky AVM Preview Program.
