      Description

      The special procedure syntax has been a constant source of trouble and confusion for people learning Scala, while providing no benefit except a few saved characters over using the standard method syntax.

      To not cause pointless work for people, this migration has to happen in multiple steps:

      • Update the style guide and the specification
      • Update tools (IDEs, Scalariform, ...)
      • Deprecate procedure syntax
