Heckle 2.0.0.b1 Released

heckle version 2.0.0.b1 has been released!

Heckle is unit test sadism™ at its core. 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.

It’s like hiring a white-hat hacker to try to break into your server and
making sure you detect it. You learn the most by trying to break things
and watching the outcome in an act of unit test sadism.
