Scala vs. IDEA Version Compatibility

Hi,

I'm unclear on the relation between which versions of Scala are supported by which versions of IDEA (and its Scala plug-in).

Could one of the principals please spell out the version compatibility situation?


Thanks.

Alexander,

That's great, but how about the question I asked? Which versions of IDEA (with their associated Scala plug-in) support which versions of Scala?

Sorry, I was inattentive.
As for compilation both versions of IDEA supports both Scala 2.7 and 2.8.
As for error handling Diana version is unusable for scala 2.8, because it has more strict rules (for short imports) and new features (default and naming parameters, package objects).
Maia is usable for both 2.7 and 2.8, you just need to use scala 2.8 full qualified import syntax to have all references resolved (or migrate to scala 2.8 and use new short imports syntax).
Did I answer right?

Best regards,
Alexander Podkhalyuzin.
