When do new ScriptRunner Confluence custom script macros get compiled?

We have started to evaluate the ScriptRunner for Confluence add-on (v4.3.17) on Confluence 5.9.2 and 6.1.1 running on Windows.

I suspect that there is something wrong with our configuration.

Working through the documentation, when I try to create a custom script macro, even a trivial test that simply prints, "Hello, World", the script macro is not immediately available for use in pages. In fact, I can't figure out what causes the new script macro to become available for use. Is it a background build process? Is there a log file I can check? Is there a way to force it to update?

Once the script macro IS available for use, subsequent modifications to the script logic are reflected in Confluence content immediately.

Has anyone had a better experience with this add-on? It looks like exactly what we need for customizations.

Thanks in advance.

Okay. Just heard back from Adaptavist: there is an issue in ScriptRunner for Confluence with script macros not appearing. 

I assume when the bug is fixed, that script macros will appear more or less immediately.
