  • RFC metric was accounting references to any Method/ClassMethod more than once

  • Class not declared abstract rule has been reviewed accordingly to abstract definition discussed with different COS developer teams: A class should be abstract if all methods are empty or declared as abstract, then class should be abstract
  • Properly distinguish a variable that starts with sql in a logic sentence from &sql function
  • Recognize multiline comments after commands and method calls were without a space separator
  • Don't trigger Class not found rule for system classes. Now will recognize system classes if declared zn %SYS%
  • Don't trigger Method not found rule for system classes. Now will recognize system classes if declared zn %SYS%
  • Dont' trigger Missing argument(s) in method call rule when using ByRef and/or Output parameters
  • Review of accepted system variables on Variable not found rule to avoid false positives
  • Recognize comments inside a &html
