Summary: This document provides information about changes and new features introduced in this release.
Changes in results post upgrade
This section lists changes in results post upgrade from CAST AIP 8.3.2 with the embedded .NET Analyzer.
Externalization of the .NET Analyzer
The .NET Analyzer has been "externalized" as an official CAST AIP Extension in this release of CAST AIP. This extension is delivered and installed automatically with CAST AIP 8.3.x with new CAST AIP triplets and as part of an upgrade. Note that any changes in analysis results that are visible after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.x (and therefore to the externalized .NET Analyzer) are only due to improvements and bug fixes introduced in this release of the analyzer and NOT due to the externalization.
SCRAIP-30874 - Declare as Static all methods not using instance members - 7270
A bug has been discovered that is causing inconsistent results for the Quality Rule "Declare as Static all methods not using instance members - 7270". This bug has now been fixed, therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.3 (from CAST AIP 8.3.2) and the generation of a post upgrade snapshot on the same source code, results may differ.
