The company formerly known as Typesafe, inventors of the Scala programming language, has completed their renaming and is now known as Lightbend. Typesafe announced their plans to rename last May, stating at that time that it was expected to be a two month process. They invited community members to participate, and provided blog updates about their progress.
Typesafe announced the Play framework will be included in the Typesafe Stack 2.0. The Play framework is a Rails/Grails like framework originally focused on Java not Scala. Now the Play framework 2.0 supports Scala and Java as first class citizen. InfoQ catches up with Donald Fischer, President and CEO of Typesafe, to get his thoughts on adding the Play framework to the Typesafe Stack.
