Can't get sbt 1.4.x to work
3 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 16 Feb 2021
Downloaded the ZIP from the downloads page (https://github.com/sbt/sbt/releases/download/v1.4.7/sbt-1.4.7.zip) and extracted it. It is the method I've been using since sbt 0.13 days3 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 16 Feb 2021
Do you have any reference? The download page mentions JDK 8 (https://www.scala-sbt.org/download.html) and I can't find anything in the releases page (https://github.com/sbt/sbt/releases). The Installing sbt on macOS page (https://www.scala-sbt.org/1.x/docs/Installing-sbt-on-Mac.html) says "Follow the link to install JDK 8 or 11"

New plugin to support LSP file operations
6 projects | reddit.com/r/neovim | 9 Jan 2023
Please write in the comments if you know of any language servers I should test it with. Currently I tested only metals and rust-analyzer.
Why are all the guides on using LSP functionality full of bloat?

If you are using nvim-lspconfig you can pass the settings as a Lua table to the setup function. For example, here are may metals settings:

Bazel support in Metals. I didn't spend all that time figuring out and adjusting Emacs/Spacemacs and making my workflow (almost) mouse-free just to scrap my config and switch to IDEA's rodent infested ways.
Scala 2.13.9 is here
3 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 21 Sep 2022
There is one small issue involving code completion returning inappropriate completions in some cases; https://github.com/scalameta/metals/pull/4414 will fix it, once it's included in a release. Perhaps that's the PR you saw?
Scala Isn't Fun Anymore
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Sep 2022
It is, by quite a bit.
While the "Scala IDE" project is dead for all practical purposes, IntelliJ IDEA's Scala plugin is actually pretty amazing. There's also a VisualStudio plugin that does pretty much the same and is advancing by leaps and bounds. There are also interconnecting projects that provide i.e. language server or build server that are reused by other projects. It's pretty modular. Metals (https://scalameta.org/metals/) is amazing.
In general the language has become a wee bit faster to build, there was good progress with build times during the 2.12/2.13 cycles.
With Scala3 the language got a bit simpler; concepts that were implemented explicitly using (hehe) implicits got their own keywords and a lot of the opinionated boilercode that cause a lot of debates is now generated during complication and hidden. A lot of "standardization" has occurred.
