??-June-2021 - 6.36.0-SNAPSHOT

The PMD team is pleased to announce PMD 6.36.0-SNAPSHOT.

This is a minor release.

New and noteworthy

New rules

  • The new Apex rule AvoidDebugStatements finds usages of System.debug calls. Debug statements contribute to longer transactions and consume Apex CPU time even when debug logs are not being captured. You can try out this rule like so:
    <rule ref="category/apex/performance.xml/AvoidDebugStatements" />
  • The new Apex rule InaccessibleAuraEnabledGetter checks that an AuraEnabled getter is public or global. This is necessary if it is referenced in Lightning components. You can try out this rule like so:
    <rule ref="category/apex/errorprone.xml/InaccessibleAuraEnabledGetter" />

Renamed rules

  • The Java rule BadComparison has been renamed to ComparisonWithNaN to better reflect what the rule actually detects. It now considers usages of Double.NaN or Float.NaN in more cases and fixes false negatives.
