An improved notification message is now displayed when no vulnerabilities are found in a scanned project.

WhiteSource Advise for IntelliJ IDEA

Added support for the "apply from" script plugin in Gradle projects, which can reference a dependency file contained within the scanned project or outside of it.
NOTE: Remote script location is not supported.

WhiteSource Advise for Eclipse,
WhiteSource Advise for Visual Studio

Beginning in this version, you can configure the plugin to alert only on direct dependency vulnerabilities (as opposed to both direct and transitive vulnerabilities).

Beginning in this version, a new WhiteSource Security/License Check summary will be displayed in case a scan results in an empty inventory (as opposed to when one or more Security/License issues are detected).

WhiteSource Remediate Remediate sometimes, and Renovate often, needs to query github.com for tags and releases (e.g. for release notes fetching).
Customers using Renovate especially will get rate limited by github.com quickly if they don't provide authentication with every request. Guidelines on how to do that are provided here.

NOTE: The GitHub Enterprise, Bitbucket Server, and GitLab integrations in this version support version 21.2.2 of the Unified Agent. The GitHub.com integration in this version supports version 21.3.1 of the Unified Agent.

    • For each specified branch, scanning results will be sent to a new WhiteSource Project containing the branch name as a suffix.
    • An Issue will only be created for the specified branch names.
    • For existing integrated repositories which do not contain the baseBranches parameter, Issues will be generated for all branches.
  • After a valid push is performed on an integrated repository, more information such as a dependency hierarchy and a suggested fix is now displayed inside the WhiteSource Security Check (as part of a Check Run for GitHub.com/GitHub Enterprise, Commit Status for GitLab, and Build Status for Bitbucket Server).
