Release 1.2 with new layout and reviews

Simon Brandhof-2
We have always been impressed by the layout of the Google Analytics
dashboard. Its data oriented interface is intuitive, simple and
powerful at the same time. It gave us a lot of ideas to improve Sonar
usability. The release 1.2 is the first step of this interface
refactoring. For example major measures like code coverage or
complexity/method are emphasized on the project dashboard. See a
screenshot at http://sonar.hortis.ch/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/dashboard.png

The actual new feature of this release is reviews, like design or code
reviews. They are a well-known technique to obtain quality and
productivity improvements, even in agile teams. Resulting measures of
such manual reviews are saved and displayed on the dashboard besides
other metrics (screenshot :

course it does not replace tools like Atlassian Crucible, focused on
the whole review process.

The release also fixes some bugs. Have a look at the changelog for
more details : http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SONAR/fixforversion/14022.
Dowload : http://sonar.hortis.ch/downloads/
Documentation : http://sonar.hortis.ch/documentation/1_2/

The development iteration is one month long, so the release 1.3 is
planned for end of April. Until this time don't give your feedback on
this mailing-list.

The Sonar team.
