Update Information:

**Version 2.7.0**  * Added --file-list command line argument to allow a list of
files and directories to be specified in an external file     * Useful is you
have a generated list of files to check that would be too long for the command
line     * File and directory paths are listed one per line     * Usage is:
phpcs --file-list=/path/to/file-list ...     * Thanks to Blotzu for the patch *
Values set using @codingStandardsChangeSetting comments can now contain spaces *
Sniff unit tests can now specify a list of test files instead of letting the
runner pick them (request #1078)     * Useful if a sniff needs to exclude files
based on the environment, or is checking filenames     * Override the new
getTestFiles() method to specify your own list of test files *
Generic.Functions.OpeningFunctionBraceKernighanRitchie now ignores spacing for
function return types     * The sniff code
Generic.Functions.OpeningFunctionBraceKernighanRitchie.SpaceAfterBracket has
been removed     * Replaced by
Generic.Functions.OpeningFunctionBraceKernighanRitchie.SpaceBeforeBrace     *
The new error message is slightly clearer as it indicates that a single space is
needed before the brace * Squiz.Commenting.LongConditionClosingComment now
allows for the length of a code block to be configured     * Set the lineLimit
property (default is 20) in your ruleset.xml file to set the code block length
* When the code block length is reached, the sniff will enforce a closing
comment after the closing brace     * Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the
patch * Squiz.Commenting.LongConditionClosingComment now allows for the end
comment format to be configured     * Set the commentFormat property (default is
"//end %s") in your ruleset.xml file to set the format     * The placeholder %s
will be replaced with the type of condition opener, e.g., "//end foreach"     *
Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch * Generic.PHPForbiddenFunctions
now allows forbidden functions to have mixed case     * Previously, it would
only do a strtolower comparison     * Error message now shows what case was
found in the code and what the correct case should be     * Thanks to Juliette
Reinders Folmer for the patch * Added Generic.Classes.OpeningBraceSameLine to
ensure opening brace of class/interface/trait is on the same line as the
declaration     * Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch * Added
Generic.PHP.BacktickOperator to ban the use of the backtick operator for running
shell commands     * Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch * Added
Generic.PHP.DisallowAlternativePHPTags to ban the use of alternate PHP tags
* Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch *
Squiz.WhiteSpace.LanguageConstructSpacing no longer checks for spaces if
parenthesis are being used (request #1062)     * Makes this sniff more
compatibile with those that check parenthesis spacing of function calls *
Squiz.WhiteSpace.ObjectOperatorSpacing now has a setting to ignore newline
characters around object operators     * Default remains FALSE, so newlines are
not allowed     * Override the "ignoreNewlines" setting in a ruleset.xml file to
change     * Thanks to Alex Howansky for the patch * Squiz.Scope.MethodScope now
sniffs traits as well as classes and interfaces     * Thanks to Jesse Donat for
the patch * PHPCBF is now able to fix Squiz.SelfMemberReference.IncorrectCase
errors     * Thanks to Nikola Kovacs for the patch * PHPCBF is now able to fix
Squiz.Commenting.VariableComment.IncorrectVarType     * Thanks to Walt Sorensen
for the patch * PHPCBF is now able to fix Generic.PHP.DisallowShortOpenTag     *
Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch * Improved the formatting of
the end brace when auto fixing InlineControlStructure errors (request #1121) *
Generic.Functions.OpeningFunctionBraceKernighanRitchie.BraceOnNewLine fix no
longer leaves blank line after brace (request #1085) * Generic
UpperCaseConstantNameSniff now allows lowercase namespaces in constant
definitions     * Thanks to Daniel Schniepp for the patch * Squiz
DoubleQuoteUsageSniff is now more tolerant of syntax errors caused by mismatched
string tokens * A few sniffs that produce errors based on the current PHP
version can now be told to run using a specific PHP version     * Set the
php_version config var using --config-set, --runtime-set, or in a ruleset to
specify a specific PHP version     * The format of the PHP version is the same
as the PHP_VERSION_ID constant (e.g., 50403 for version 5.4.3)     * Supported
sniffs are Generic.PHP.DisallowAlternativePHPTags,
PSR1.Classes.ClassDeclaration, Squiz.Commenting.FunctionComment     * Thanks to
Finlay Beaton for the patch * Fixed bug #985 : Duplicate class definition
detection generates false-positives in media queries     * Thanks to Raphael
