RuboCop 0.19 has been released! This is the biggest RuboCop release we've done in a while. The highlights include about a dozen new cops, more cop configuration options, improved auto-correct and so many bugfixes.

Here is the list of all the gory details. Enjoy!
I just wrote an article about the differences between length, size and count in Ruby.
I wrote a short overview of deprecated stuff in Ruby (as of 2.1). Hopefully some people will find it useful.
My Christmas gift for you is RuboCop 0.16! It adds Ruby 2.1 support, a few new cops (checks) and a ton of bug fixes and improvements. Have a look at the changelog for all the details.

I just wrote an article on line and string regexp anchors in Ruby.
I just wrote an article about Enumerable#each_with_object.
I just released RuboCop 0.15.0! It can now auto-correct most whitespace problems in Ruby code and features some new cops (like a cyclomatic complexity check) and more configuration options. More than a dozen bugs reported since the last release were fixed as well.
RuboCop 0.14 is out! You really want to see what's new this time. :-)
I just wrote a short article on using lambdas in case expressions.

I just released RuboCop 0.6.0! It's the project's most ambitious release for far, featuring more than a dozen new checks, the ability to locally disable checks and lots of bugfixes and improvements.
I've just released version 0.4 of RuboCop - an experimental Ruby code analyzer, based on the community Ruby style guide. This is the first version that's deemed suitable for general use and adds support for Ruby 2.0. Hopefully you'll find it useful!
