New check: LocationReference - This check can be configured to compare a method argument or variable assignment to the names of the current method or class, helping to make sure that such code location references are correct.
Reacting to the high volatility of the public Checkstyle API, Checkstyle Addons is now automatically built against all Checkstyle versions requiring at least Java 6 (which is 6.0 and upwards). This means more work for the build server, but also much higher confidence that the Checkstyle Addons code will be compatible with any Checkstyle version.
The previous item is supported by the introduction of dependency configurations. A dependency configuration is a property file which lists the versions of things that we depend on when building for a particular Checkstyle version, for example Java level, or SonarQube plugin versions.
