Speedy work from Typesafe

Scala 2.9.2 RC2 and Scala IDE for Eclipse 2.0.1 RC2 arrives

Just over a week on from releasing the first release candidate, we now get to see a second as the team behind the Scala language have released Scala 2.9.2 RC2.

With most of the legwork being done with RC1, Scala 2.9.2 RC2 focuses mostly on additional backporting and adding in some important scaladoc improvements. Effectively doing the admin work. Fellow Typesafe project Scala IDE for Eclipse simultaneously announced their second release candidate for 2.0.1 which updated to feature the latest bundle Scala language, as to be expected.

There will be one release candidate at the end of the 2.9.2 cycle, but as most Scala developers like to look towards the future at the same time, many will be talking about Scala 3. The full list of fixed issues can be seen via the announcement.

This release candidate is made available for testing purposes only and is not intended for production environments, but that shouldn't put you off trying it out when you can. The Scala team are looking for feedback too, so if you hunt down an issue, feel free to tell them.

Once again great work from the Scala community to tackle a large number of issues.
