Will the Scala Plug-in Be Updated for 12.x?

I see a new release of the Scala plug-in in the plug-in repository browser (currently 0.8.48) but it appears not to be compatible with 12.x (EAP for 12.1.4 Ultimate, currently #129.549).

Will there be new releases of the Scala plug-in between now and when 13.x is released? I typically go with EAPs once they're through the first several iterations, but since the current emphasis of IDEA 13 appears to be Android and I don't do any of that, I wasn't planning on switching over right away. But if the only way to get ongoing Scala plug-in improvements is with 13 EAP, I'll switch.

Until September current release strategy is the following:
1. We are releasing new plugin version at the start of every month for IDEA 12.x
2. In case of IDEA 13 EAP, version from 1 will be patched to be compatible with IDEA 13 and then released. No nightly for IDEA 13, no releases at the start of every month.

So I think you don't have to switch.

The problem with the updates, at least for me, is that Scala plugin reports its version incorrectly. Recent releases (39, 48, and 49) reports its version as 37 (lib/scala-plugin.jar/META-INF/plugin.xml/version), which seems to prevent automatic updates.

Yes, sorry, just fixed it.

Hi!

Any ETA on a new Play Framework 2.0 plugin that works with the new Scala Plugin v.0.10.279?
Editing .scala.html files without the Play plugin is much more work! :)

thanks!

Hi, Steven,

Play plugin is updated now. Sorry for inconveniences. We will try to make Scala/Play updates compatible and always up-to-date in the future.

Best regards,

Hello,

I would like to know what the current status of this is. Will the Scala plugin be updated for IDEA 12.x?
Same reason as previously stated by others (sticking with 12.x for the meantime unless good reason to upgrade).

Not sure if you can also provide any indication on the Play 2.0 support/plugin, but if so that would also be good to know.

Underlying reason for my question is performance issues I am having with play 2.0 projects in IDEA.
If I want to debug, then I have to invalidate the caches, then run a full code inspection.
This costs precious precious time and is really starting to drive my developers away from the platform.
Perhaps I am having a different issue than would be resolved by an update, but I would like to know the support status for these plugins in any case.

Thanks,
Aaron

I just uploaded Play plugin with fix for your problem (I hope so): http://plugins.jetbrains.com/update/index?pr=&updateId=14862. This is Critical problem, that's why we uploaded it. However we will not update Scala and Play plugins for IDEA 12 for any other reason.

Best regards,

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the back-port, I understand the reasoning for not supporting both versions but was dissappointed that the updates stopped even before the full release of IDEA 13 happened.
Congratulations to your team on such a successful tool, the plugin you create is almost the sole reason we have for upgrading.

For those considering whether to upgrade to IDEA 13 or not, upgrade.
I tested this out yesterday to evaluate whether the upgrade would resolve these issues.
The performance and responsiveness of the IDE is far better the v12 for large-project scala development.

Cheers,
Aaron
