Updates to C, C++-17, and C++-20 standards have also been incorporated, providing customers with the confidence that CodeSonar support spans from old to new language features. GrammaTech continues its work on open standards including contributing to and supporting SARIF version 2.1. This support also means that CodeSonar can work with the latest versions of IDEs such Microsoft VS Code.

CodeSonar continues its integration with JuliaSoft by supporting the latest release of the Julia engine, which provides high recall, high precision detection of security vulnerabilities in Java and C#.
