LicenseFinder Improvements

LicenseFinder, everyone’s favorite gem license auditing tool, has received a slew of new features and improvements. If you’re unfamiliar with LicenseFinder, it’s a tool that allows you to manage and discover the licenses of your project’s dependencies.  The core functionality allows you to
