We are very happy to announce the final release of the Scala IDE for Eclipse V2.0.1.
This is a maintenance release containing only bug fixes, upgrade is recommended for all users.
What is new in 2.0.1?
In 2.0.0 the IDE delivered better incremental compilation by building on the already
proven Sbt incremental compiler. In 2.0.1 we improve on the Eclipse builder by following Sbt
more closely when dealing with dependent projects:
- when a project has build errors, dependent projects are not rebuilt
- fine-grained information about changes in a project are propagated to downstream dependent
projects, leading to even less files being recompiled
In 2.0.1, the Eclipse builder compiles exactly the same number of files at the command line Sbt.
We fixed a couple of small, but annoying editor issues: double braces are inserted and deleted
together, completions that need an additional import won’t mess up the file, and
works when called from the contextual menu.
This release is based on Scala 2.9.2, and includes a couple of improvements in the way compiler
plugins are loaded, including the continuations plugin. Now you can have several compiler plugins loaded
side-by-side, and properly use the

The fine print
This version works with both Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) and 3.7 (Indigo). We developed and tested it using
Java 6, but Java 7 can be used with some caveats.
