PHP_CodeSniffer 0.7.0 (beta) released

Version 0.7.0 of PHP_CodeSniffer was released today. It wasn't intentional, but it has been almost two months since the last release. Consequently, it has the largest changelog of any release so far, including a couple of backwards compatibility breaks for those writing their own coding standards. There are also ten new sniffs for you to use in your own standards, or as examples for writing your own sniffs.

The most important feature added was the auto-detection of line endings, previous discussed here. This feature allows for PHP_CodeSniffer to be used correctly for projects that don't use Unix newline characters.

This release also has also seen the unit test suite grow to 100 tests, a nice milestone.

You can download the new release, and view the changelog, on the download page.
