Debugger improvements

Dear Scala dev team,

A few months ago Alexander stated in the issue tracker that the debugger would be substantially improved before the release of 12.1.

Any news about the progress in this area? Debugging is, for me, about the only area in Intellij's Scala support that is still too rough around the edges (e.g., the contents of variables in outer scopes is not accessible until you manually step back a frame).

Other than this, I really love the progress you have made. Keep up the good work!

Hi, Maarten,

We just focused on Scala tools support (SBT and Play 2.0), so we will not see any significant changes in Debugger area in Scala plugin before IDEA 12.1 release. Debugger is still top priority feature (after as you can see SBT, Play 2.0 and general highlighting issues), so we will start working on it ASAP.

Best regards,
Alexander Podkhlayuzin.
