Rat 0.12 (SNAPSHOT)
* We now require Maven 3.0.5+ to build Rat, but as before we only require
Maven 2.2.1+ if you want to use Rat in your own Maven projects.
* We've integrated Rat into the ASF Jenkins to ensure continuous builds with various JDK versions.
* Issues resolved (see
* [RAT-158] - Fix SAX-Parser warning by explicitly excluding xerces in Doxia 1.2.
(thanks to Hervé Boutemy)

configurability of that file.

* [RAT-180] - Generify and beautify texts in RAT report.
New features
* [RAT-171] - Maven plugin allows scanning of source code management ignore files. Their contents is added as exclusion to be ignored during RAT runs.
Supported source code management systems are: SVN, Git, Bazaar, Mercurial and CVS.
An ignore-file's contents is taken as it is without parsing or validating.
* [RAT-196] - Minor refactoring in pom.xml.
(thanks to Karl Heinz Marbaise)

* [RAT-202] - Report layout differs between successful RAT checks and existence of unapproved files.
* [RAT-203] - Using 'license' in README, source code, javadoc, comments and site instead of 'licence'; improve terminology to not confuse RAT consumers.
