Of course you can. We develop our plugin with Scala 2.8 version.

Best regards,

I just realized, what you asked.
You mean, can you use new features like package objects or named arguments? Unfortunatly, no.
May be we'll wait new specification for 2.8.0.

Best regards,
Alexander Podkhalyuzin.

Are you saying that you're using Scala version 2.8 pre-releases internally to develop the Scala plug-in but the plug-in itself does not support the new language features of version 2.8? If that's so, does it mean that you're not using IDEA to develop IDEA's Scala plug-in?

No. Of course, we use IDEA for development, in other way it would be really strange.
I said that we use 2.8 compiler, because it contains decompiler. But we don't use other major unreleased features. But as I read, new features is cool:)

Best regards,

OK. Clearly there's a bootstrapping problem to deal with.

I'm not yet using Scala 2.8, but I'm watching its development closely to choose the best time for me to switch over. I don't want to do it too soon and suffer to much with early releases, but there are some things I'd like to use and I don't want to get too heavily committed to obsolescent aspects, especially the existing collections.
