I know this might be asking a lot, but I would think a full chapter on SBT, or maybe an appendix would be nice. There is so little documentation elsewhere and it seems to be getting popular in the Scala world.

Re: SBT
Yes, but.

I use it, though some options I have not yet had time to read about.

It's a great tool and is very useful, even a replacement for maven.
e.g. it's background action option "~<action>" is quite handy.

A basic introduction about parts which will probably never be changed I would like to have in the book. Maybe http://days2010.scala-lang.org/node/138/165 could be a source.

But too much detail would outdate "Scala in Action" too fast and might diminish it's value.

Re: SBT
We pretty much agree. I don't think you need to put anything fancy in it, just just enough to be dangerous. I think an appendix of 2-3 pages would work best, but that's just me.
