This is a source release of Infer packaged with pre-built binaries for clang and facebook-clang-plugins for Linux and MacOS. To use it follow these instructions.


  • New checker: --ownership detects a subset of use-after-free issues due to bad manual memory management. This is a rough prototype of Rust-style borrow checker for C++. (enabled by default, C++)
  • New checker: --uninit detects uses of uninitialized values (enabled by default, C/C++/Objective-C)
  • New checker: --racerd now also detects inconsistent lock usage in C++. Also improved the lock domain to reduce false positives for all languages.
  • Improved C++ support: destructors are now properly translated; addresses and pointers are handled more precisely
  • Improved retain cycles detection (Objective-C)
  • Upgraded the internal clang to clang 7
  • [internal] SQLite is being used to store some of infer's analysis artefacts instead of storing them in files on disk. This improves analysis speed and reduces load on the OS.
