  • Support for analyzing QNX Momentics projects, QCC compiler.
  • V1038. It's odd that a char or string literal is added to a pointer.
  • V1039. Character escape is used in multicharacter literal. This causes implementation-defined behavior.

  • PVS-Studio C# now can detect potential null dereferences (V3080 rule) inside methods when potential null value is passed to a method as an argument.
  • Plug-in for PVS-Studio Java analyzer is now available in the official JetBrains plug-in repository. You can now also install integration with IDEA through our Windows Installer.

  • Compiler Monitoring for Windows now can correctly work when monitoring a build under Keil uVision in case a Windows user name contains non-Latin characters.
  • V1037. Two or more case-branches perform the same actions.
  • V2530. MISRA. The loop should be terminated with no more than one 'break' or 'goto' statement.

PVS-Studio 7.01 (March 13, 2019)

  • The limit that existed in the trial version of the analyzer for Visual Studio plug-in, restricting a number of analyzer's messages that can be viewed in the source code, is no more! Now, PVS-Studio for Windows uses the same trial mode as PVS-Studio on other platforms - you can get a fully functional trial license by filling out a form on the analyzer's download page.
  • PVS-Studio C# rule V3080 (null dereference) is now able to detect potential dereferences when a reference can receive null in one of the execution branches. Inter-procedural analysis was improved.
  • PVS-Studio Visual Studio plug-in can now perform automatic checkouts on suppress files that are stored in TFVC (Team Foundation Version Control). This mode can be enabled on 'Options... > Specific Analyzer Settings' page.
  • V1036. Potentially unsafe double-checked locking.
  • V2529. MISRA. Any label should be declared in the same block as 'goto' statement or in any block enclosing it.

PVS-Studio 7.00 (January 16, 2019)

  • PVS-Studio 7.00 now provides static analyzer for Java. You can read about all new features of PVS-Studio 7.00 in our blog.
  • PVS-Studio plug-in for SonarQube is updated to support latest SonarQube version 7.4. The minimal SonarQube version supported by PVS-Studio plug-in is now raised to LTS SonarQube version 6.7.
  • V2526. MISRA. The function with the 'clock/time/difftime/ctime/asctime/gmtime/localtime/mktime' name should not be used.
  • V2527. MISRA. A switch-expression should not have Boolean type. Consider using of 'if-else' construct.
  • V2528. MISRA. The comma operator should not be used.
  • V6001. There are identical sub-expressions to the left and to the right of the 'foo' operator.
  • V6002. The switch statement does not cover all values of the enum.
  • V6003. The use of 'if (A) {...} else if (A) {...}' pattern was detected. There is a probability of logical error presence.
  • V6004. The 'then' statement is equivalent to the 'else' statement.
  • V6005. The 'x' variable is assigned to itself.
  • V6006. The object was created but it is not being used. The 'throw' keyword could be missing.
  • V6007. Expression is always true/false.
  • V6008. Potential null dereference.
  • V6009. Function receives an odd argument.
  • V6010. The return value of function 'Foo' is required to be utilized.
  • V6011. The expression contains a suspicious mix of integer and real types
  • V6012. The '?:' operator, regardless of its conditional expression, always returns one and the same value.
  • V6013. Comparison of arrays, strings, collections by reference. Possibly an equality comparison was intended.
  • V6014. It's odd that this method always returns one and the same value of NN.
  • V6015. Consider inspecting the expression. Probably the '!='/'-='/'+=' should be used here.
  • V6016. Suspicious access to element by a constant index inside a loop.
  • V6017. The 'X' counter is not used inside a nested loop. Consider inspecting usage of 'Y' counter.
  • V6018. Constant expression in switch statement.
  • V6019. Unreachable code detected. It is possible that an error is present.
  • V6020. Division or mod division by zero.
  • V6021. The value is assigned to the 'x' variable but is not used.
  • V6022. Parameter is not used inside method's body.
  • V6023. Parameter 'A' is always rewritten in method body before being used.
  • V6024. The 'continue' operator will terminate 'do { ... } while (false)' loop because the condition is always false.
  • V6025. Possibly index is out of bound.
  • V6026. This value is already assigned to the 'b' variable.
  • V6027. Variables are initialized through the call to the same function. It's probably an error or un-optimized code.
  • V6028. Identical expressions to the left and to the right of compound assignment.
  • V6029. Possible incorrect order of arguments passed to method.
  • V6030. The function located to the right of the '|' and '&' operators will be called regardless of the value of the left operand. Consider using '||' and '&&' instead.
  • V6031. The variable 'X' is being used for this loop and for the outer loop.
  • V6032. It is odd that the body of 'Foo_1' function is fully equivalent to the body of 'Foo_2' function.
  • V6033. An item with the same key has already been added.
  • V6034. Shift by N bits is inconsistent with the size of type.
  • V6035. Double negation is present in the expression: !!x.
  • V6036. The value from the uninitialized optional is used.
  • V6037. An unconditional 'break/continue/return/goto' within a loop.
  • V6038. Comparison with 'double.NaN' is meaningless. Use 'double.isNaN()' method instead.
  • V6039. There are two 'if' statements with identical conditional expressions. The first 'if' statement contains method return. This means that the second 'if' statement is senseless.
  • V6040. The code's operational logic does not correspond with its formatting.
  • V6041. Suspicious assignment inside the conditional expression of 'if/while/do...while' statement.
  • V6042. The expression is checked for compatibility with type 'A', but is cast to type 'B'.
  • V6043. Consider inspecting the 'for' operator. Initial and final values of the iterator are the same.
  • V6044. Postfix increment/decrement is senseless because this variable is overwritten.
  • V6045. Suspicious subexpression in a sequence of similar comparisons.
  • V6046. Incorrect format. Consider checking the N format items of the 'Foo' function.
  • V6047. It is possible that this 'else' branch must apply to the previous 'if' statement.
  • V6048. This expression can be simplified. One of the operands in the operation equals NN. Probably it is a mistake.
  • V6049. Classes that define 'equals' method must also define 'hashCode' method.
  • V6050. Class initialization cycle is present.
  • V6051. Use of jump statements in 'finally' block can lead to the loss of unhandled exceptions.
  • V6052. Calling an overridden method in parent-class constructor may lead to use of uninitialized data.
  • V6053. Collection is modified while iteration is in progress. ConcurrentModificationException may occur.
  • V6054. Classes should not be compared by their name.
  • V6055. Expression inside assert statement can change object's state.
  • V6056. Implementation of 'compareTo' overloads the method from a base class. Possibly, an override was intended.
  • V6057. Consider inspecting this expression. The expression is excessive or contains a misprint.
  • V6058. The 'X' function receives objects of incompatible types.
  • V6059. Odd use of special character in regular expression. Possibly, it was intended to be escaped.
  • V6060. The reference was used before it was verified against null.
  • V6061. The used constant value is represented by an octal form.
  • V6062. Possible infinite recursion.
  • V6063. Odd semicolon ';' after 'if/foreach' operator.
  • V6064. Suspicious invocation of Thread.run().
  • V6065. A non-serializable class should not be serialized.
  • V6066. Passing objects of incompatible types to the method of collection.
