Eclipse Scala Plugin Progress

I just have to say: I've been using a recent build of the Eclipse Scala 2.7.4 plugin and finding it really solid and really productive!

  • Content assist for the most part Just Works
  • Ctrl-click to jump to source so far Just Works, regardless of if the source/destination is Java or Scala
  • And of course, the killer feature: integrating ScalaDoc and JavaDoc seems really stable now

All the old compiler crashes I was experiencing are now gone so I can now work for hours without restarting my IDE.

Now to figure out a way to releng mixed Java/Scala OSGI bundles. I hear that Maven is the way to go right now…

To the team: Nice job!
