- Introducing Error Reports
- New code action for converting dependencies from sbt to scala-cli compliant ones
- Improvements to semantic highlighting
Introducing Error Reports
Starting with this release, upon chosen errors or incorrect states in metals error reports will be automatically generated and saved in the
.metals/.reports directory within the workspace. Such an error report can later be used by users to attach to a github issue with additional information. All the reports have their paths anonymised.
Currently, we create two types of reports:
- incognito under
.metals/.reports/metals: these error reports contain only metals related stacktraces and should not contain any sensitive/private information
- unsanitized under
.metals/.reports/metals-full: these error reports may contain come sensitive/private information (e.g. code snippets)
To make it easier to attach reports to github issues the
zip-reports command will zip all the incognito reports into
.metals/.reports/report.zip, while unsanitized reports will have to be browsed and attached by hand. In order not to clutter the workspace too much, only up to 30 last reports of each kind are kept at a time.
When running into a problem in VSCode (or any editor that implements this command) users can use the
Metals: Open new github issue command. This will create a template for an issue with all basic info such as Metals version, used build server etc.. Next, you can browse through reports and drag and drop chosen ones to your GitHub issue. Invoking the
Metals: Zip reports command will create a zip of all the incognito that reports can also be included in the issue.
New code action for converting dependencies from sbt to scala-cli compliant ones
New code action for scala-cli
using (dep | lib | plugin) directives, which allows to convert dependencies from sbt style to scala-cli compliant ones.
A great contribution by majk-p.
