Security Coverage

CodeQL 2.7.6 runs a total of 289 security queries when configured with the Default suite (covering 127 CWE). The Extended suite enables an additional 88 queries (covering 31 more CWE).


Bug Fixes

  • A bug where creation of a CodeQL database could sometimes fail with a NegativeArraySizeException has now been fixed.

New Features

  • The CLI and evaluator contain a number of new features in support of internal machine learning experiments. This includes an experimental resolve ml-models subcommand and new mlModels metadata in pack definition files. As these new features are not yet ready for general use, they should be ignored by external CodeQL users.
