I just read on the 'what's new page' that Vivado 2019.2 adds an great new feature : Sigasi based linting :
"Next gen linter in text editor (Sigasi based)
Where can I find more details on this linting? What it covers, can we see the linting rules, can we adapt these if needed, etc.

I think you need to install and use the sigasi studio creator as the text editor.
Look like it is paid. Is Xilinx providing this editor without a fee to be used with Vivado? :-D

But what interested me was the phrase copy/pasted from the Xilinx release notes : "Next gen linter in text editor (Sigasi based)". To me that sounds like they licensed the Sigasi linter or part of it, and integrated this in the Vivado editor. I can see that Xilinx is working on the editor, I remember in 2015.4 or 2017.2, it was merely something like notepad. So could this linting be the next step?

They are providing Vivado for free. I don't think they would embed a 3rd party Linting tool also for free. :-)
Did you chk out the cost also for Synopsys Spyglass license to be used as Linting tool?

There is a limited set of Sigasi features available as part of Vivado, with no additional cost. To turn these on, you need to use turn it on in the settings. Tools->Settings.
We don't currently have a list of the rules checked for available.
