Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala. I'll leave the preamble this week since there's lots of content to share!

New Stuff

  • Typesafe released Activator, an easy way to get started with Scala, Akka and Play framework quickly
  • postgresql-async 0.1 was released and now supports almost all it's initial goals!
  • The shapeless-contrib project now shows how Shapeless + Scalaz = profit. Finally, you can sequence your HList's!
  • Cake's own @honzam399 gave us “org.eigengo.akka-extras” % “javamail” % “0.1.0” on Sonatype. Now you can spam send newsletters with Akka.
  • Yann Ramin remembered to tell us that he upgraded akka-quartz to Scala 2.10 awhile back
  • Socko v0.3.0 was released - Socko allows you to expose your Akka actors as RESTful web services with a splash of Swagger and without annotations
  • Sam Skivert shared all the "legos" you need to write iOS apps in Scala in his project: ios-scala-demo
