Heckle 1.2.0 Released

heckle version 1.2.0 has been released!

by Ryan D. and Kevin C.

Heckle is a mutation tester. It modifies your code and runs your
tests to make sure they fail. The idea is that if code can be changed
and your tests don’t notice, either that code isn’t being covered or
it doesn’t do anything.
