      Description

      I know the build page details which cppcheck category had new errors. I am asking for a change not related to this build page, but to the cppheck result page.

      It would be tremendously helpful if the Details table had a new column which could specifically identify the new errors for that build.

      Our use case now is that an email goes out to a developer if they introduce new cppcheck errors. They are directed to the Cppcheck Result page. Yes it shows the total number of new errors, but that isn't helpful to the developer if there were a handful or many previous errors not yet fixed. It is hard for them to know which errors they are responsible for. Adding a new column to the table would quickly show them the newly introduced errors that they are responsible to fix.

      Another way to handle it would be to add a link to the Errors Trend table under the number of new errors. The link could take you to a table of only the new errors.
