Release 6.5 Upgrade Notes

Quality profiles provided by language analyzers are now read-only and automatically updated

To make sure that every user benefits from the latest improvements brought by new versions of language analyzers, the quality profile that are provided by the corresponding plugins are now read-only and automatically updated when a new version of the plugin is installed. In the Web UI, those quality profiles can be identified thanks to the "Built-in" flag.

Because those quality profiles were previously editable, the migration appends "(outdated copy)" to the name of existing quality profiles to prevent having them being automatically replaced by the built-in ones. This way, if some modifications were done on (for instance) some of the "Sonar way" profiles, you won't lose those modifications.

In any case, it is highly recommended to take a look at the quality profiles once the migration is done.
