We were fortunate to get lots of help from the contributors for sbt 1.3.0, and were able to make some big changes. For sbt 1.4.0, maybe we should try to ship in 100 ~ 200d. (I’ve said that about sbt 1.3.0 too, but we should aim for it nonetheless)
One of the things I would be looking into is Zinc performance in large corporate codebase.
BSP support is something I’ve had on a short list of feature enhancement. (Related contribution would be welcome in this area)
Another nice-to-have that I’ve been hacking on-and-off is using
build.properties file more. For example,
giter8.version should be specified in there so the template author can specify the Giter8 version (much like how sbt works). Another idea that’s been brought up is allowing build authors to specify JVM flags in there.
If anyone has Christmas wishes, I’d be happy to get feedback in this thread, and maybe contributors can get ideas.
