I just released excellent 2.0.0 which has some big improvements:
* now supporting config file .excellent.yml in current working directory to configure which specs to run/ not to run with thresholds, patterns etc.
* predefined globals will not be reported anymore ($!, $@, $&, $`, $’, $+, $1, $2.., $~, $=, $/, $, $„ $;, $., $, $_, $0, $*, $$, $?, $:, $”, $DEBUG, $FILENAME, $LOAD_PATH, $stdin, $stdout, $stderr, $VERBOSE, $-0, $-a, $-d, $-F, $-i, $-I, $-l, $-p, $-v)
* enabled previously disable checks again: AbcMetricMethodCheck, ControlCouplingCheck, CyclomaticComplexityBlockCheck, CyclomaticComplexityMethodCheck, ForLoopCheck, FlogBlockCheck, FlogClassCheck, FlogMethodCheck
* testing now uses Rspec 2
* internal cleanups/ simplifications
