We are happy to announce that the beta08 release of the Eclipse IDE forScala is ready for download! This release comes in two flavors: the2.9.0-1 version, and the 2.8.2-SNAPSHOT version.
The 2.8 compiler shipped with this version of the plugin is based onthe development branch of 2.8.2, and is fully binary compatible with2.8.1. It contains the same improvements to the presentation compiler as the 2.9 version, and a number of bug fixes related to Java signatures.
What's new:- fixed large memory leak in mark occurrences.- new Run Selection REPL: edit window for commands (with history). Try    it by pressing Ctrl-Shift-X inside a Scala editor to run the selected   expression (or the current line). More:  - JUnit runner finds tests in Scala files reliably (even when files are not open).- Fixed errors shown in Java sources coming from the Scala compiler.- Fixed crash in Java completion for Scala classes in the default (empty) package.
A list of fixed tickets for this release is available here:
