Even though macros have already been released with Scala 2.10.0, development of the project didn't stop. We are actively implementing new features targetting future Scala releases. Check out the official Scaladoc site to learn more about macro paradise, the cradle of progress in Scala macros.
Starting from Aug 5th, we have made macro paradise available as a plugin to the 2.10.x series of Scala compilers.
There is no more need to obtain custom builds of
scalac to make use of our new functionality.
With the paradise plugin, such features as quasiquotes are readily available in production Scala environments.
