    Good news!

    But from Settings -> Plugins I can see only version 0.2.20. Is it possible to update automatically from IDEA or download and manual installation is the only option?

    Ok. The problem is probably because my IDEA version is 12.1 IU-126.330. For some reason update check (channel – EAP) returns “You have the latest version…”.

      You need to install IDEA 12.1.2 (stable release). Then update Play2 plugin.

    Thank you guys for all your hardwork on these plugins – they have made my Scala experience quite a joy! Is Typesafe aware of your efforts and supporting you guys at all? You seem to be quite a bit more stable and feature rich than Scala IDE is currently…

      Community needs Scala plugins for all major Java IDEs including Eclipse and NetBeans. And I’m sure Typesafe is aware of our efforts.

    What happened to your plan to publish a new release of the plugin once per month?

    Are the latest Scala and Play 2 plugins compatible with each other in Idea 12.1.x? I get this message on startup:

    Incompatible plugin detected
    Plugin Play 2.0 Support of version 0.2.49 is icompatible(spelling mistake, btw) with Scala plugin of version 0.10.281. Do you want to disable Play 2.0 Support plugin?

    Version 0.5.54 of the Play 2.0 Support plugin has broken play support for me. It doesn’t allow me to edit the scala templates anymore. I cannot seem to find a combination of the scala plugin versions and play 2.0 support plugin versions that work for Intellij 12.1.4
