We are very happy to announce the release of the Scala IDE for Eclipse V2.0.2. This is a maintenance release containing only bug fixes, and upgrade is recommended for all users.
Better support for JDK 7
The Scala presentation compiler used to (incorrectly) use the running JDK, instead of the one configured on the build path. Now it will honor the correct JDK, meaning that Eclipse can run on JDK 6, but your project can compile against JDK 7.
Better support for nested projects
Importing your multi-module project in the Scala IDE has never been a problem. However, compilation errors in a nested project used to be reported in the top-level project, which was of course confusing. That is fixed now, and we know the Maven lovers will like it.
Better support for mixed Java/Scala projects
For the many of you working with mixed Java/Scala projects, we have been fixing an annoying issue related to
@throw annotation, which was causing incorrect errors to be reported in the Java editor.
