Coverity Upgrade to 2020.09

2021 January 23

Attention SCAN users! We will begin upgrading the Coverity tools in SCAN on Saturday, 23 January to make this free service even better. The SCAN team has been hard at work stabilizing the service and getting ready for this upgrade.

SCAN will be unavailable during the upgrade, locking registration and triage, and halting builds. Defect data will be unavailable at that time. The upgrade is expected to take three to five hours.

After the upgrade, a new version of the Coverity build package will be available for download. Be sure to download the new build package.

Full details of new features are available at the Community Site.
