Hello all,

After two release candidates, making fixes for REST API installation and various migration tests, FOSSology is stable enough for a new release. The main features of the 3.5.0 release can be found under RC1.

Particular corrections after RC1 can be found under RC2.

Mainly 3.5.0 adds more documentation, infrastructure improvements and support for brand new FOSSology REST API. A brief introduction about the REST API can be found at:

Moreover, new functionality has improved JSON output for nomos and restructured license detection for nomos. Last but not the least, FOSSology now have capabilities to ignore files specific to version control systems from the scanning improving scan times.
