The plugin for 2.8 is heavily redesigned.
But you have to realize that it's a lot more challenging than other plugins because it has to get the JDT to understand Scala.

I used the latest *stable* version (note that this is definitely not
bleeding edge).I experienced the following:
1) Many unexplained errors in the eclipse error console with no noticable
effect.
2) Some unexplained defects (sometimes highlight won't work, sometimes Find
reference won't work).
3) Overall it worked OK, and reasonable not-slow.
However, it is the worst eclipse plugin I ever used, considerring stability
and features. So don't come with great expectations.

It doesn't have to, but that is what it does, yes.

Re: IDE plugins
hi,
jetbrains just opensourced their intellij idea that has nice, out-of-the-box scala support. you might want to try it.
