Can't update Scala plugin after upgrade to 14.1 Follow
I have been using IntelliJ 14.0.3 with Scala plugin 1.4 for a while (on Mac OS Yosemite). Today I upgraded to IntelliJ 14.1: i downloaded the new .dmg file & ran it. When presented with the dialog, I dragged it to Application folder. Was prompted whether to replace existing IntelliJ 14 CE application or keep both - chose replace.
After starting IntelliJ, I noticed none of my Scala files were syntax highlighted. Clicked Check for Updates & was shown update for Scala plugin 1.4.15. Clicked update & waited for the plugin to download. After downloading, nothing happens. Restarting IntelliJ & clicking Check for Updates still shows old Scala plugin version & offers to upgrade to 1.4.15. Tried various things (disabling plugin, restarting, attempt upgrade etc). No errors in the log.
Anyone else had issues with this? Should I have removed the old IntelliJ build from Applications folder before installing 14.1 - or opted for Keep Both?

Same here. Also OS X Yosemite. Will revert back to IDEA 14.0.4
EDIT: The way you updated is how I always update IDEA, and it always worked.
I have the exact same problem. I'm on Yosimite as well. Uninstalling the Scala plugin and reinstalling using the IntelliJ plugin browser allowed me to get back to work. I didn't need to downgrade IntelliJ, just uninstall and reinstalled the Scala plugin. IntelliJ prompls me now to upgrade Scala because it thinks I have version 1.3.149 install, when I chose to install the latest. I'll ignore the prompts to upgrade the Scala plugin (which doesn't seem to upgrade it at all) until the Scala plugin is fixed.
Just finished downgrading. Everything works fine again. Wish I had time to look into the reason of why this is failing. If anyone here find out what is happening pls update. Thanks.
no need to downgrade anything. I went into the same problem. the easy fix was to download the plugin from the website and just move the extracted jar into the plugin folder of intellij
Same problem. 14.1 plus new Scala plugin seems to break SBT. Had to backtrack to 14.0.3 / 14.0.4 and download and insert an older Scala plugin to get back up and running.
yeah, I also don't have time to look into why. Downgrading worked for me (though I had to reset a few settings too - all my modules got set to Java 1.5 bytecode target which broke my build). I see a solution below to download the pluging & overwrite on disk, but I think I'm just going to wait for an update to the plugin/intellij before trying again.
thanks neo lin!
I did this two ways and each method had a different result.
First I did the manual download from the download page ( Download the plugin ) for the plugin ( http://www.jetbrains.net...Plugin+for+IntelliJ+IDEA ). OS X automatically unpacked the zip file and I could move it to the directory ~/Library/Application\ Support/IntelliJIdea14.
The other thing I did was to create a temporary directory and the issue the command "curl https://plugins.jetbrains.com/files/1347/19130/scala-intellij-bin-1.4.15.zip -o scala-intellij-bin-1.4.5.zip" (Minus the quotes) to download the file and tell IntelliJ to install it.
Of the various things I tried, the first stopped IntelliJ from complaining about the Scal version and the second step was able to cause IntelliJ to recognize the correct version of Scala was installed.
Originally, I thought the issue was that I had the SBT plugin still loaded as a carry-over from IntelliJ 13, but after uninstalling the old SBT plugin, the Scala plugin continued to refuse to update.
It would be nice to see this issue fixed at some point.
