2.7.7 or 2.8.x for new Eclipse Scala project?
Thu, 2010-01-07, 19:22
One of the developers on my team is a very strong Eclipse programmer and
isn't too excited about using Scala on a brand new project due to the
weaker Eclipse IDE support compared to Java or Groovy. He would rather
work in Java or Groovy since the IDE support is much stronger.
Given this is a brand new project and the his most important concern is
IDE support, which version of the Eclipse Scala plugin should we use?
2.8.x line or the 2.7.x?
I'm not too concerned with coding against Scala 2.8.x since the API is
pretty stable and given the code base is small, recompiling it for newer
2.8.x beta releases isn't a big deal.
Is the Eclipse 2.8 support a significant step better than the 2.7?
