Updates in Lucent Sky AVM 5.0.1

  • Native MSBuild - .NET applications are compiled using the managed .NET compilers provided by the Microsoft.Build.BuildEngine class. As MSBuild is now maintained separately from .NET Framework, the BuildEngine class lacks support for the latest language features such as those came with C# 7.0. In earlier versions of Lucent Sky AVM, these new language features were supported through the use of system-wide compiler-override. Starting with v5.0.1, you can specify the application to be compiled using the latest MSBuild and compilers available on the system, by setting the MSBuild to native.

  • XML report improvements - Additional information about files in a scan, such as which files were scanned by which analysis engines, were added to the XML report. The XML report schema is unchanged. To include these information in the HTML or PDF report, use an XSL template to access the Report\Scan\Files elements.

  • UI improvements and bug fixes - Several improvements and bug fixes for web UI and Visual Studio extension were included.

Known issues of Lucent Sky AVM 5.0.1

Priority filtering in HTML reports does not work

When clicking a priority level in the priority pie chart, or selecting a priority level in the priority dropdown list, does not filter results according to the selected priority. Instead, all results are shown. This is due to an incorrect HTML report template being used. This issue only affects HTML reports. It does not affect priority filtering in the Web UI.

A hotfix for this issue is available and can be obtained from Lucent Sky support. This issue is expected to be resolved in Lucent Sky AVM 5.1.
