Axivion Suite release 7.0 features Python 3 upgrade
The latest release 7 of the Axivion Suite from Axivion is now available. Innovations in the latest version of the tool suite for automated static code analysis and architecture checking include in particular the upgrade to Python 3, the new graphical configuration interface for simplified configuration of e.g. MISRA and metric checks, and – after Windows and Linux – the availability of Axivion Suite for macOS.
After the discontinuation of Python 2 by the end of April 2020, the migration to Python 3 is an important part of the release 7.0 of the Axivion Suite. The tool suite now supports the use of both Python 3.7 and 3.8.
Apple users will be happy to learn that the Axivion Suite is now also available for macOS. Up to now, the tool suite was primarily used on Windows and Linux operating systems, but due to the increasing demand on the customer side, Axivion is making its tools available for Mac users with the new release.
The new graphical configuration interface of the Axivion Suite benefits all users. While previously only textual configuration of the various code and architecture analyses was possible, users can now use the new uniform configuration system and analysis framework to make settings for MISRA checks or individual metric checks, among other things.
For example, threshold values can be set conveniently and intuitively in the simplified graphical metrics configuration, from which a rule violation is displayed. Illustrations in both the modern and the classic dashboard also provide a plus in user-friendliness: In the user interface, architecture violations and cycles are displayed clearly and thus are quickly comprehensible.
Additional new features in the Axivion Suite include support for C# 7.2 and 7.3 and for Git submodules, as well as compliance with MISRA-C:2012 Amendment 1 Security Rules and Amendment 2. Issue details and markers can now be displayed not only in an overall analysis but also in a single-file analysis. Furthermore, the documentation is now available in HTML format instead of just PDF.
For customers who would like to use the new release as an opportunity to check their configurations and, if necessary, to further optimise them, Axivion offers migration and configuration support through their Professional Services Team.
