On the history of the project...
"Sean McDirmid had broken new ground writing the original version. The team at EDFT wanted more features, but they also wanted it to be a reliable production quality tool. With Sean's work they could see the potential and were willing to invest to get what they needed. I outlined a plan of attack and we got going. The main goal was seamless support for mixed Scala/Java projects and integration w
ith Eclipse's Java tooling: it's clear that a large proportion of Scala projects will start from an existing Java codebase and this seamless integration is absolutely essential to support gradual migration. We wanted to do this whilst at the same time fixing bugs and improving reliability with every release. I think I've succeeded in this, and it has had a generally confidence building effect on the Scala IDE's users. This increase in confidence has led to wider use and more valuable contributions from the community. Over the period of about 18 months I've steadily removed or re-factored redundant or structurally inappropriate code and roughly halved the line count to around 30,000. The code base is now much more accessible to casual contributors too.".
