Announce: sbt 1.1.0


Lightbend Tooling team is happy to announce sbt 1.1.0. This is the first feature release of sbt 1, a binary compatible release focusing on new features.

sbt 1 is released under Semantic Versioning, and the plugins are expected to work for sbt 1.x series.

The headline features of sbt 1.1 are unified slash syntax and sbt server. Please see sbt 1.1.0 with sbt server and slash syntax for the details.

Thanks to everyone who’s helped improve sbt and Zinc 1 by using them, reporting bugs, improving our documentation, porting builds, porting plugins, and submitting and reviewing pull requests.


Neat! Question, though: in order to use sbt server, does the project have to be 1.1.0 based, or is it sufficient to be running it inside 1.1.0? I don’t know sbt well enough for the answer to be obvious…


Yes. The server feature is part of sbt 1.1, which requires that your build be upgraded from 0.13.
