Hello Yann,

Codename for IDEA 7 ? Or some cool new IDEA-related project? :)


Maybe Scala support (http://scala.epfl.ch)?

Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification ;)

It is Scala language support, and it is not planned to be included in IDEA. At least for now:)

Wow, you do have a yen to do functional programming again, and have chosen a great way to go about it! I always figured that Scala was a language with a lot of potential, close enough to the Java environment and "style" to make building a community easier, while being both terser and more expressive of design intent. If you guys put in the effort to give it a modern environment, some amazing things could happen.

(The was the more measured, restrained version of this post. The initial version went something like: I WANT THIS NOW!!!! LET ME HELP PICK ME! PICK ME! I'll do a hundred inspections and twenty refactorings tomorrow!!! SCALA IN IDEA!!!! OMGWTFBBQ!)

Hello Dave,

AFAIU this project is going to be open source, along with Ruby one. Thus,
I see no problems for you to participate there. Just let us have a start
with it.

Scala is great, and easy, since it runs on the JVM. Are there plans for other functional langs, like Erlang? I love it's concurrency focus...

Erlang is hard to implement on top of the JVM. However, Scala now has 'lightweight threads', essentially analog of Erlang threads.
