MercurialEclipse 1.3.1019 Wednesday, Feb 18 2009 

With the talk about DVCSs as active as ever in the Eclipse world, I thought I’d mention the release of MercurialEclipse 1.3.1019. It still lacks quite a bit of polish, but it already supports a decent amount of features.

Even though Mercurial doesn’t have as much momentum as Git, it has been adopted by a respectable amount of projects (including Mozilla, Netbeans and OpenJDK).

Scala plugin for Eclipse snapshot r17139 Wednesday, Feb 18 2009 

The snapshot of the Scala plugin for Eclipse that I posted a few days ago had a couple of annoying bugs. Here’s a new one build (note that it’s an Eclipse update site, so no point in trying to access it with a browser) from revision 17139 of the trunk of the plugin with the compiler and standard libraries from the 2.7.x branch.

Miles has been busy once again and fixes included since the last build are 1717, 1233, 1636, 1662, 1716, 1627, 1534, 1410, 1516, 1483 and 1253.

Update: New build published that includes fix for ticket 1741. Uninstallation followed by installation may be required if p2 starts giving cryptic errors (it seems like it doesn’t handle well the case where the update site is replaced). Sorry about that.

Update 2: With the release of Scala 2.7.4-rc1, this backport is obsolete.
