We are very happy to announce a new release candidate for the next maintenance release of the Scala IDE for Eclipse. Scala IDE 2.0.1 RC3 is available now!
The only change with respect to 2.0.1 RC2 is the bundled Scala, which is now Scala 2.9.2-RC3.
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
Open Declaration works when called from the contextual menu.
This release is based on Scala 2.9.2-RC3, 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.
