Following the Checkstyle lead, Checkstyle Addons has also moved to Java 8 (hence the new major version). Plus, the propertyFile option of the PropertyCatalog check features a new placeholder.

Starting with Checkstyle 7.0, Checkstyle requires Java 8. So, Checkstyle Addons is now also compiled for Java 8 by default. If you are on a previous Java version, that’s fine! You may use the artifacts postfixed with java7 or java6, respectively. They are functionally equivalent, but work with previous levels of Java and the corresponding older versions of Checkstyle.
