ESLint 0.22.0 released

We just pushed ESLint 0.22.0, which is a minor release upgrade. This release includes new features and bug fixes.


This is a summary of the major changes you need to know about for this version of ESLint.

New Rules

We added 3 new rules to ESLint this release:

  • lines-around-comment - Enforces empty lines around comments (off by default)
  • accessor-pairs - Enforces getter/setter pairs in objects (off by default)
  • object-curly-spacing - Disallow or enforce spaces inside of curly braces in objects.

We also renamed existing rule no-empty-class to no-empty-character-class to prevent confusion with ES6 classes

Preparation for configuration validation

We added rule schemas as well as schema validation, in preparation of enabling validation of .eslintrc configuration files.
