ECLAIR version 3.3 contains substantial new functionality over the previous versions and offers significant improvements in all aspects of the system.
ECLAIR version 3.2 contains many new static analyses, especially targeted at security. Support has been improved and extended for C11, C++11, C++14 and C++17.
The quality of ECLAIR HTML reports has been improved further and their generation has been speeded up by more than an order of magnitude. A new class of reports, suitable for printing, has been introduced.
There are new, very convenient installers both for the Windows and the Linux versions.
An ECLAIR package supporting all the AUTOSAR C Implementation Rules has been released. These rules are applicable for the development and maintenance of all the software of an AUTOSAR ECU written in the C programming language. These 25 rules enhance software quality in terms of reliability (through the avoidance of risky language constructs), readability, maintainability and portability. The ECLAIR package allows complete automatization of checking compliance with respect to all such rules.
Roberto Bagnara, our CEO/CTO, is now a member of the MISRA-C Working Group. The working group is in charge of developing and maintaining the MISRA-C coding guidelines. MISRA-C is a set of software development guidelines for the C programming language developed by MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association). Originally aimed at the automotive industry, MISRA-C is now in widespread use in all industry sectors, especially those concerned with the development of safety- and mission-critical software.
The presentation “On the Toyota UA Case and the Redefinition of Product Liability for Embedded Software” given by Roberto Bagnara at the 12th Workshop on Automotive Software & Systems was awarded the Best Presentation Award. This is the second time in a row BUGSENG's CEO receives that award. The slides are available here.
A joint project conducted by BUGSENG and Evidence has resulted in the release of the first version of Erika Enterprise (an open-source OSEK/VDX hard real-time operating system) that can rightfully claim to be MISRA-ready, that is, essentially free of unjustified violations of the MISRA-C:2004 guidelines.
ECLAIR's MISRA-C:2012 + HIS Metrics package offers the most extensive, properly said MISRA-C:2012 coverage available on the market, by providing support for around 95% of the guidelines. (Beware of fakes: MISRA-C:2012 cannot be covered by remapping MISRA-C:2004 checkers!)
ECLAIR version 3.0 contains many new services and major improvements to existing services, most notably those supporting the MISRA coding standards.
Configurability has also been enhanced and makes it easier to support projects that use C and C++ at the same time and/or use different coding standards on different parts of the project. Deviation mechanisms have also been extended and improved.
The presentation “Is the code we have verified what we really have embedded” jointly given by Ugo Schiara (Bitron) and Roberto Bagnara (BUGSENG) at the 11th Workshop on Automotive Software & Systems was awarded the Best Presentation Award. The slides are available here.
On October 30th, 2014, Roberto Bagnara, CEO/CTO of BUGSENG, will give a presentation at the 12th Workshop on Automotive Software & Systems. The presentation is titled “On the Toyota SUA Case and the Redefinition of Product Liability for Embedded Software”.
ECLAIR version 2.1 contains several new features, in particular concerning the generation of reports in various formats, and major improvements in every part of the system.
This release includes support for positive time elapse, a new operator on polyhedra, improvements to the Java interface, several portability improvements and a few bug fixes. See the release notes for more information.

This release includes support for the optimized representation of sparse vectors of coefficients, achieving significant performance improvements, e.g., when dealing with constraint systems describing weakly relational abstractions such as boxes and octagonal shapes. See the release notes for more information.
