CodeSee Maps now available 

CodeSee announced its new Review Maps to contextualize the potential impact of code changes, address feedback, and submit reviews all in one end-to-end experience. Code Maps can be useful to both the code author and the code reviewer.

  • Side-by-side code comparison 
  • Intuitive grouping 
  • Identifying dependencies 
  • Adding comments 
  • A progress bar
  • And submitting code reviews 
Kotlin support for protocol buffers 

Google announced that it will be deepening its support for the Kotlin language with official support for Kotlin in the open-source Protocol Buffers project (protos), Google’s platform-neutral, high-performance data interchange format.

From a proto definition, users can now use the new built-in Kotlin support in the proto compiler to generate idiomatic Kotlin Domain Specific Languages (DSLs). With this release, proto brings users a set of DSL methods that make code idiomatic in Kotlin. 

In addition, the Kotlin version uses Kotlin type-safe builders, making it concise and removing the need to call a build method.
