FOSSology 3.6.0 release

Shaheem Azmal M MD
 

Hello everyone,

After two release candidates, making fixes for migration tests, unified report and load issues with tree-view, FOSSology is stable enough for a new release. The main features of the 3.6.0 release can be found under

[RC1](https://github.com/fossology/fossology/releases/tag/3.6.0-rc1). Particular corrections after RC1 can be found under [RC2](https://github.com/fossology/fossology/releases/tag/3.6.0-rc2).

 

Few interesting features in this release are: 

 

  • A new agent named `ojo` (eye in Spanish) which does dedicated searches for the 'SPDX-License-Identifier' statements
  • Improved handling of manually added copyright statements to files
  • Improvements to the SPDX reporting, for example output also of comments
  • Calculating the SHA256 values for files from now on, because that is going to be used for integration of, for example, Software Heritage or Clearly defined
