SD Times news digest: Harness reaches $1.7 billion valuation, Dynatrace integrates with Snyk Intel data, and WhiteSource expands native support for IDEs
Software delivery platform Harness announced that it will use its recent $115 million in funding to grow its engineering team, support global expansion plans, and extend its intelligent software delivery platform vision.
Harness provides an end-to-end platform for intelligent software delivery that implements machine learning to detect the quality of deployments.
“Our goal is to create an intelligent software delivery platform that allows every company in the world to become as good in software delivery as the likes of Google and Facebook,” said Jyoti Bansal, the CEO and co-founder of Harness.
Dynatrace integrates real-time vulnerability detection with Snyk Intel data
Dynatrace’s Application Security Module now links the vulnerabilities that it finds to the Snyk Intel database of open-source vulnerabilities.
“We built the Dynatrace platform to provide continuous automation and intelligence for dynamic, cloud-native environments. Extending it to application security, and enabling production detection in dynamic environments, was a natural step,” said Bernd Greifeneder, the founder and CTO of Dynatrace.
Dynatrace Application Security is also optimized for Kubernetes architectures and DevSecOps approaches.
WhiteSource expands native support for IDEs
The new integrations for JetBrains Pycharm and Webstorm provide real-time visibility and control on open-source components for developers in their preferred IDEs.
With the new Pycharm and Webstorm additions, WhiteSource now supports six popular environments that also include JetBrains IntelliJ, Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, and Eclipse.
“These integrations empower developers to address open source security issues very early in the development process and resolve them easily, shortening release cycles, and saving valuable time and resources,” WhiteSource wrote in an announcement.
Xamarin.Forms 5.0 released
The latest major release includes quality improvements and stable release of new features such as App Themes, Brushes, CarouselView, RadioButton, Shapes and Paths, and SwipeView.
Visual Studio 2019 is the minimum version required for the new Xamarin.Forms, and Microsoft encourages those who will update to remove DataPages and Theme packages from their solutions. Additional details on the best way to migrate are included here.
Xamarin.Forms 5.0 will continue to receive service releases through November 2022, Microsoft stated.
