Release notes

Since version 3.0.0 we have renamed our product to fit better the target language analyzed: ObjectScript. We have also renamed all the related products like objectscriptQuality for Caché Studio, objectscriptQuality for Aterlier and objectscriptQuality for VSCode.

Since version 3.2.0 we have removed support for SonarQube previous to version 6.5.
