Featuring the new Dashboard
We released version 8.5.1 of Sonargraph-Explorer. We finally managed to finish the migration to Eclipse RCP 4, which was quite a nightmare. The most visible new feature is the new dashboard view. In this release the dashboard is still pretty static, but soon it will be fully configurable, meaning that you can pick and choose the data you want to see in the dashboard. Additionally all dependency graphs now allow to filter by dependency type. As usual the release also contains many improvements and bug fixes. Check the release notes for all the details.

Tips, Tricks and Ideas for Software Craftsmen
We opened a blog site and plan to add new content about twice a month. You will already find two articles there. One about the different categories of technical debt and why they should not be treated equally, the second one shows how you can use the scripting feature of Sonargraph-Explorer to identify the components that contribute the most to overall system coupling. Please share your opinion and feedback by adding comments to the article. You can reach the blog site by clicking on the "Blog" menu entry.
Supports C#, C/C++ and Java
Today we officially released Sonargraph-Explorer. The new product supports Java, C# and C/C++ out of the box and can be categorized a the swiss army knife for software architects, software quality analysts and developers.
For C/C++ the program comes with instant support for Visual C++, Gnu C/C++ and CLang. Other compilers can be supported by adding specific compiler configurations. Our parser supports all the newest additions to the C++ language.
For C# Sonargraph supports Microsoft and Mono implementations. The newest version of Java is supported as well.
Now includes full support for Java 8
Our newest release of Sonargraph now fully supports Java 8. We also improved the performance of the parser and the Eclipse plugin, especially when the Maven Eclipse plugin was also present.
For our SonarQube plugin no update is needed. Just update the version of Sonargraph referenced during the build process. The Jenkins plugin just runs through the update process on the Jenkins site and should be available within the next couple of days.
Our upcoming product Sonargraph-Explorer is in the final stages of its official release. Here we already support the newest versions of all three supported languages Java, C# and C/C++. You can already evaluate the product using an evaluation license.
