I tried it but didn't resolve the problem for my workspace.

Usually after update, I run eclipse with --clean flag for the first time. It seems to fix related problems.

A small note to those trying out this plugin. Completion seemed to be broken if I used this plugin with my old workspace. Recreating the whole workspace and projects resolved this problem. Probably some old metadata from the previous Scala plugin that's caused some problems.

My setup is Eclipse 3.6.2 with Aptana 2.0.5 plugin on Windows 7 (32-bit).

The Scala IDE for Eclipse for Scala beta 1 available now!
Almost at the same time with the 2.9.0-RC1 release of the Scala
language, we are happy to announce a first beta of the
Scala IDE for Eclipse!

The new Scala IDE contains a completely revamped compiler interface
that promises to deliver better responsiveness, reliability, no
lock-ups and excellent semantic actions. Actions such as hyperlinking,
completion and real-time type checking are working reliably on large
projects. This release is a firm foundation on which the IDE can grow
to support all the features of a modern IDE.

 - Eclipse 3.6.x (Helios)

The current release is an effort to provide a much more reliable and
stable plugin. Existing features in the 1.x series have been reviewed
and ported to the new compiler interface. However, you may notice that
some of them did not make it into this release (most notably,
highlighting implicit applications). We chose to be
conservative and include only features that can work reliably at this
point. To ease the choice between the IDE versions, there's a feature
matrix at

A note on versioning: the current release is a large departure from
the initial code base, and in order to minimize confusion, we called
this version 2.0.0 beta1. The initial code base, using the 2.8.x Scala
compiler carries the 1.0.0.qualifier version.

The compiler interface has been written by Scala's author and Scala
Solutions founder, Martin Odersky, who together with the IDE team at
Scala Solutions (Eugene Vigdorchik, Donna Malayeri, Hubert Polciniczak
and Iulian Dragos) and members of the Scala IDE community (Matt
Russel, Mirko Stocker, David Bernard, Miles Sabin) has been working
for the past four months to deliever a better IDE.
