Impacts of changes made in CAST AIP 8.3.7 on Quality Model results post upgrade

SCRAIP-32897 - False Positive for Quality Rule "Variables defined in Working-Storage section must be initialized before to be read - 8034"

A bug has been discovered which has meant that the rule "Variables defined in Working-Storage section must be initialized before to be read - 8034" is returning false positive violations for objects that are correctly initialized. This bug has been fixed and after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.7 and the generation of a post-upgrade consistency snapshot on the same source code, results may be impacted: reduced number of violations increasing accuracy.

SAP-121 - ABAP 'unresolved Member & Method warnings': Unresolved objects are created

A bug has been discovered which is causing the creation of "unresolved method objects" for methods declared in classes. The analysis log also contains corresponding warning entries about these unresolved objects. This bug has now been fixed and after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.7 and the generation of a post-upgrade consistency snapshot on the same source code, results may be impacted: increased number of method objects and removal of warnings in the analysis log due to unresolved objects.
