Martin Odersky announces new company to provide Scala stable previous version support.

Martin Odersky has announced ‘Scala Solutions,’ a new company that
aims to provide organisations with the products and services to
help them use Scala in the creation of business applications.

Speficially, Scala Solutions will provide Scala stable previous
version support by distributing updates with bug fixes for previous
versions, starting with Scala 2.8, as some companies may need to
keep existing version based applications running after newer
versions have been announced. Scala Solutions have also revealed
that a ‘Migration Manager’ will be released in January 2011, for
enabling applications compiled with a previous version of Scala, to
be scanned for binary incompatibilities. It will aim to
automatically rectify binary compatibility issues, through
classfile rewriting.

Martin Odersky said: “We have founded Scala Solutions to provide
the advanced tools and services needed by Scala developers to
create mission critical applications that are reliable, quick to
develop and easy to maintain.”
