This means that the number of rules taken in to account by this release of the extension is higher than in release 1.x of the extension (ATDM), which only considered "CISQ" Business Criteria. As a direct result, Technical Debt values will be higher for release ≥ 2.x of the extension and are therefore not comparable with release 1.x. You can see a list of Technical Criteria used by the extension in Scope below.
