Changes from 1.67 to 1.68:

New checks:
- Multifile checking for buffer overruns and uninitialized variables

Improvements:
- Libraries are now able to contain platform specific types
- Improved handling of function overloads
- Improved handling of integer literal suffixes
- Improved stability of template parsing
- Improved accuracy of ValueFlow analysis
- Improved checking of pointer overflow
- Support noexcept(false)
- Support attribute((noreturn))

   qt.cfg

Additionally, lots of false positives and bugs have been fixed and
several existing checks have been improved.


DESCRIPTION
===========

Cppcheck is a static analysis tool for C/C++ code. Unlike C/C++
compilers and many other analysis tools it does not detect syntax
errors in the code. Cppcheck primarily detects the types of bugs that
the compilers normally do not detect. The goal is to detect only real
errors in the code (i.e. have zero false positives).
