Just over three months ago we released the first developer preview of Typesafe Activator.  Since then developers have been raving about how easy it is to start building applications on the Typesafe Platform using Activator.  Today we are excited to announce that Activator is open source!

Along with Activator being open source we’ve posted a new 0.3.0 developer preview release.  This release includes 21 template applications that make it easy to get started with Play Framework, Akka and Scala.  The community has been contributing some great templates and so can you!

With Activator now being open source we are excited to see what else the community will contribute.  We’ve heard some are already working on new features like an integrated Scala REPL.  We can’t wait to see where this goes!
