    December 04, 2019
    • The PHP 7.4 T_FN token has been made available for older versions
      • T_FN represents the fn string used for arrow functions
      • The double arrow becomes the scope opener, and uses a new T_FN_ARROW token type
      • The token after the statement (normally a semicolon) becomes the scope closer
      • The token is also associated with the opening and closing parenthesis of the statement
      • Any functions named fn will have a T_FN token for the function name, but have no scope information
      • Thanks to MichaΕ‚ Bundyra for the help with this change
    • PHP 7.4 numeric separators are now tokenized in the same way when using older PHP versions
      • Previously, a number like 1_000 would tokenize as T_LNUMBER (1), T_STRING (_000)
      • Now, the number tokenizes as T_LNUMBER (1_000)
      • Sniff developers should consider how numbers with underscores impact their custom sniffs

    • βž• Added Generic.Files.ExecutableFile sniff
      • Ensures that files are not executable
      • Thanks to Matthew Peveler for the contribution
    • Generic.CodeAnalysis.EmptyPhpStatement now reports unnecessary semicolons after control structure closing braces
      • Thanks to Vincent Langlet for the patch
    • Generic.PHP.LowerCaseKeyword now enforces that the fn keyword is lowercase
      • Thanks to MichaΕ‚ Bundyra for the patch
    • πŸ‘ Generic.WhiteSpace.ScopeIndent now supports static arrow functions
    • PEAR.Functions.FunctionCallSignature now adjusts the indent of function argument contents during auto-fixing
      • Previously, only the first line of an argument was changed, leading to inconsistent indents
      • This change also applies to PSR2.Methods.FunctionCallSignature
    • PSR2.ControlStructures.ControlStructureSpacing now checks whitespace before the closing parenthesis of multi-line control structures
      • Previously, it incorrectly applied the whitespace check for single-line definitions only
    • PSR12.Functions.ReturnTypeDeclaration now checks the return type of arrow functions
      • Thanks to MichaΕ‚ Bundyra for the patch
    • PSR12.Traits.UseDeclaration now ensures all trait import statements are grouped together
      • Previously, the trait import section of the class ended when the first non-import statement was found
      • Checking now continues throughout the class to ensure all statements are grouped together
      • This also ensures that empty lines are not requested after an import statement that isn't the last one
    • Squiz.Functions.LowercaseFunctionKeywords now enforces that the fn keyword is lowercase
      • Thanks to MichaΕ‚ Bundyra for the patch
    • πŸ›  Fixed bug #2586 : Generic.WhiteSpace.ScopeIndent false positives when indenting open tags at a non tab-stop
    • πŸ›  Fixed bug #2638 : Squiz.CSS.DuplicateClassDefinitionSniff sees comments as part of the class name

  • v3.5.2 Changes

    October 28, 2019
    • Generic.ControlStructures.DisallowYodaConditions now returns less false positives
      • False positives were being returned for array comparisions, or when performing some function calls
    • Squiz.WhiteSpace.SemicolonSpacing.Incorrect error message now escapes newlines and tabs
      • Provides a clearer error message as whitespace is now visible
      • Also allows for better output for report types such as CSV and XML
    • The error message for PSR12.Files.FileHeader.SpacingAfterBlock has been made clearer
      • It now uses the wording from the published PSR-12 standard to indicate that blocks must be separated by a blank line
      • Thanks to Craig Duncan for the patch
    • πŸ›  Fixed bug #2654 : Incorrect indentation for arguments of multiline function calls

    September 26, 2019

    PSR-12 Standard Ready

    πŸš€ PHP_CodeSniffer has included an in-progress PSR-12 standard since 3.3.0, but this release includes the completed standard. You can now check your code using the PSR-12 standard:

    phpcs --standard=PSR12 /path/to/code
    

    πŸ›  Most of the errors found can also be automatically fixed by PHPCBF:

    phpcbf --standard=PSR12 /path/to/code
    

    πŸ”„ Changelog

    • βž• Added support for PHP 7.4 typed properties
      • The nullable operator is now tokenized as T_NULLABLE inside property types, as it is elsewhere
      • To get the type of a member var, use the File::getMemberProperties() method, which now contains a type array index
      • This contains the type of the member var, or a blank string if not specified
      • If the type is nullable, the return type will contain the leading ?
      • If a type is specified, the position of the first token in the type will be set in a type_token array index
      • If a type is specified, the position of the last token in the type will be set in a type_end_token array index
      • If the type is nullable, a nullable_type array index will also be set to TRUE
      • If the type contains namespace information, it will be cleaned of whitespace and comments in the return value
    • The PSR1 standard now correctly bans alternate PHP tags
      • Previously, it only banned short open tags and not the pre-7.0 alternate tags
    • βž• Added support for only checking files that have been locally staged in a git repo

    • πŸ‘ The File::getMethodParameters() method now returns more information, and supports closure USE groups
      • If a type hint is specified, the position of the last token in the hint will be set in a type_hint_end_token array index
      • If a default is specified, the position of the first token in the default value will be set in a default_token array index
      • If a default is specified, the position of the equals sign will be set in a default_equal_token array index
      • If the param is not the last, the position of the comma will be set in a comma_token array index

      • Enforces that boolean operators between conditions are consistently at the start or end of the line
    • βž• Added PSR12.ControlStructures.ControlStructureSpacing sniff
      • Enforces that spacing and indents are correct inside control structure parenthesis
    • βž• Added PSR12.Files.DeclareStatement sniff
      • Enforces the formatting of declare statements within a file
    • βž• Added PSR12.Files.FileHeader sniff
      • Enforces the order and formatting of file header blocks
    • βž• Added PSR12.Files.ImportStatement sniff
      • Enforces the formatting of import statements within a file
    • βž• Added PSR12.Files.OpenTag sniff
      • Enforces that the open tag is on a line by itself when used at the start of a php-only file
    • βž• Added PSR12.Functions.ReturnTypeDeclaration sniff
      • Enforces the formatting of return type declarations in functions and closures
    • βž• Added PSR12.Properties.ConstantVisibility sniff
      • Enforces that constants must have their visibility defined
      • Uses a warning instead of an error due to this conditionally requiring the project to support PHP 7.1+
    • βž• Added PSR12.Traits.UseDeclaration sniff
      • Enforces the formatting of trait import statements within a class
    • Generic.Files.LineLength ignoreComments property now ignores comments at the end of a line
      • Previously, this property was incorrectly causing the sniff to ignore any line that ended with a comment
      • Now, the trailing comment is not included in the line length, but the rest of the line is still checked
    • Generic.Files.LineLength now only ignores unwrappable comments when the comment is on a line by itself
      • Previously, a short unwrappable comment at the end of the line would have the sniff ignore the entire line
    • Generic.Functions.FunctionCallArgumentSpacing no longer checks spacing around assignment operators inside function calls
      • Use the Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing sniff to enforce spacing around assignment operators
      • Note that this sniff checks spacing around all assignment operators, not just inside function calls
      • The Generic.Functions.FunctionCallArgumentSpacing.NoSpaceBeforeEquals error has been removed
      • use Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing.NoSpaceBefore instead
      • The Generic.Functions.FunctionCallArgumentSpacing.NoSpaceAfterEquals error has been removed
      • use Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing.NoSpaceAfter instead
      • This also changes the PEAR/PSR2/PSR12 standards so they no longer check assignment operators inside function calls
      • They were previously checking these operators when they should not have
      • Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch
    • Generic.WhiteSpace.ScopeIndent no longer performs exact indents checking for chained method calls
      • Other sniffs can be used to enforce chained method call indent rules
      • Thanks to Pieter Frenssen for the patch
    • πŸ‘ PEAR.WhiteSpace.ObjectOperatorIndent now supports multi-level chained statements
      • When enabled, chained calls must be indented 1 level more or less than the previous line
      • Set the new multilevel setting to TRUE in a ruleset.xml file to enable this behaviour
      • Thanks to Marcos Passos for the patch
    • PSR2.ControlStructures.ControlStructureSpacing now allows whitespace after the opening parenthesis if followed by a comment
      • Thanks to MichaΕ‚ Bundyra for the patch
    • PSR2.Classes.PropertyDeclaration now enforces a single space after a property type keyword
      • The PSR2 standard itself excludes this new check as it is not defined in the written standard
      • Using the PSR12 standard will enforce this check
    • Squiz.Commenting.BlockComment no longer requires blank line before comment if it's the first content after the PHP open tag
      • Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch
    • Squiz.Functions.FunctionDeclarationArgumentSpacing now has more accurate error messages
      • This includes renaming the SpaceAfterDefault error code to SpaceAfterEquals, which reflects the real error
    • Squiz.Functions.FunctionDeclarationArgumentSpacing now checks for no space after a reference operator
      • If you don't want this new behaviour, exclude the SpacingAfterReference error message in a ruleset.xml file
    • Squiz.Functions.FunctionDeclarationArgumentSpacing now checks for no space after a variadic operator
      • If you don't want this new behaviour, exclude the SpacingAfterVariadic error message in a ruleset.xml file
    • Squiz.Functions.MultiLineFunctionDeclaration now has improved fixing for the FirstParamSpacing and UseFirstParamSpacing errors
    • Squiz.Operators.IncrementDecrementUsage now suggests pre-increment of variables instead of post-increment
      • This change does not enforce pre-increment over post-increment; only the suggestion has changed
      • Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch
    • Squiz.PHP.DisallowMultipleAssignments now has a second error code for when assignments are found inside control structure conditions
      • The new error code is Squiz.PHP.DisallowMultipleAssignments.FoundInControlStructure
      • All other multiple assignment cases use the existing error code Squiz.PHP.DisallowMultipleAssignments.Found
      • Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch
    • Squiz.WhiteSpace.FunctionSpacing now applies beforeFirst and afterLast spacing rules to nested functions
      • Previously, these rules only applied to the first and last function in a class, interface, or trait
      • These rules now apply to functions nested in any statement block, including other functions and conditions
    • πŸ“œ Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing now has improved handling of parse errors
      • Thanks to Juliette Reinders Folmer for the patch
    • Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing now checks spacing around the instanceof operator
      • Thanks to Jakub ChΓ‘bek for the patch
    • Squiz.WhiteSpace.OperatorSpacing can now enforce a single space before assignment operators
      • Previously, the sniff this spacing as multiple assignment operators are sometimes aligned
      • Now, you can set the ignoreSpacingBeforeAssignments sniff property to FALSE to enable checking
      • Default remains TRUE, so spacing before assignments is not checked by default
      • Thanks to Jakub ChΓ‘bek for the patch
