What is it?

Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that
adheres to a coding standard. Its purpose is to automate the process of
checking Java code, and to spare humans of this boring (but important) task.
Checkstyle can be run via an ANT task (recommended) or a command line utility.

What Changed?

- added check for package.html
- added flag allowPackage which acts similar as allowProtected
- added support for ignoring multiple lines in the file header
- added support for specifying the file header by means of regular
- added whitespace checks around '.', e.g. System . out . println()
- added check for names of methods and local variables
- check the order of modifiers (public, static, etc.) against the
  recommendation in the Java Language specification
- added checks for curly braces placement
- incorporated patch from Andrew Lang for more robust Javadoc parsing
