Scalabeans for Scala?

It appears to me that scalabeans is just what Scala needs for a clean
and unified reflection interface. Last I heard or checked, the current
Manifest objects alone do not cut it. Am I wrong about that?

Is there a plan for this in the Scala road map? Should there be?

Cheers,

Andreas

Reflection and manifests are currently being reworked. It will be some more weeks until something (and that includes documentation) is out, but it is definitely on the way.

Great to hear. Thanks, Martin! Is it going to be anything like
scalabeans or completely different?

Cheers,

Andreas

I don't know how scalanbeans works internally, so I can't comment on it. Does scalabeans make unpickle scala signature annotations?
