simple-reactivemongo 1.3.0

  • refactor out reactivemongo.json package to reactivemongo-json
  • removal of Repository#saveOrUpdate as it has a specific use case where atomicity is not an issue. It was felt that if this use case was not acknowledged and used where atomicity is required it will only cause unnecessary problems.

simple-reactivemongo provides simple case class serialization for ReactiveMongo - reactive, asynchronous and non-blocking Scala driver for MongoDB.

parboiled2 2.0.0-RC2

This is the second release candidate of parboiled 2.0. It fixes three problems that were discovered in RC1 and adds some more (minor) helper functionality.

The release announcement on the mailing list can be found here.


  • Fixed #72 by introducing CharPredicate.RangeBasedPredicate, renamed CharPredicate.CharMask to CharPredicate.MaskBased
  • Fixed #74 by moving parser macro implementations out of Parser companion object
  • Removed charAndValue and stringAndValue implicits due to bad value/risk ratio
  • Added test showcasing implicit whitespace matching
  • Extended CharUtils with more high-performance helpers

parboiled2 is a macro-based PEG parser generator for Scala 2.10.3+ and Scala 2.11, enabling lightweight and easy-to-use, yet powerful, fast and elegant parsing of arbitrary input text. It serves well as a replacement for Scala’s parser combinators and regular expressions where parsing performance, readability/maintainability of the parser definition and/or error reporting quality is of the essence.
