New version of CQM (v1.2.15) and Kiuwan Engine 


A new Kiuwan’s CQM and Engine is available.

Features of this new version are:

  • New PHP security rules (10)
  • Improved Java support with new rules for Android (7) and support for Play Framework
  • New security rules (2) for Django (Python)
  • New ABAP rules (17)

You can find these new rules by comparing v1.2.15 of CQM against previous version.  

A detailed description of the behavior of these new rules is available in rule’s description.

Unless you have blocked Kiuwan Engine, Kiuwan Local Analyzer will automatically upgrade it to the last version once a new analysis is run.

In order for these new rules be applicable, your Kiuwan account must be configured to allow automatic engine upgrade:
