The Scala plugin is not listed among the plugins available for installation. This concerns the released builds of the 7.0 dev versions, but also 6.9.1. I managed to find and install it for one of the 7 betas, but not other ones.
Can be built from sources. I was forced to remove it from dev AU since <scalac> was frequently breaking on the CI server; even when run locally it can take a couple of minutes to compile ~40 files, and takes a lot of memory. Probably should be moved out of contrib to a standalone project on java.net and built using a dedicated Hudson job.
When trying to build this from source using HG checked out source, I'm getting

Yes, the Lucene library was updated and the Scala editor would need a dependency on the new version (plus possibly compatibility fixes, though unlikely).
I changed the "Major Release Version" and "Specific Version" version info for the Library "Lucene Integration" on the "Scala Editor" and "Scala Refactoring" projects and I was able to compile/install and use the Scala Plugin just fine on the NetBeans 7.0 Dev 201102160501.

Any progress of getting this back in as an available plugin NetBeans 7.0?
It would be UNFORTUNATE to not have this as a part of the NetBeans 7.0 release! (it is a plugin that works great and the only means of supporting Scala in NetBeans)
If Caoyuan Deng - or someone else - is willing to maintain the code somehow, I could try to push it into its own repository somewhere and set up a CI job for it. This would at least produce an update site URL that users could add to NB manually; could also be published on Plugin Portal if desired.
BTW http://groups.google.com/group/scala-netbeans/browse_thread/thread/efd4d07a19e53da4 is unanswered. Also https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=3157653&group_id=192439&atid=941398 is unanswered. https://sourceforge.net/projects/erlybird/ looks abandoned and http://wiki.netbeans.org/Scala69 says nothing about 7.0.
No news yet ?
Just like to add my voice requesting an updated build for 7.x
We're close to GA for our first major product featuring a scala-based server on the backend. I love using NB + Scala, and it sure would help in promoting both within our company.
For NetBeans 7.0 + Scala 2.8.x, please get it from:
