Second Release Candidate of Scala 2.8.1
If no more problems are reported, this will become the final release.
The second release candidate of Scala 2.8.1 is out
Scala 2.8.1 RC2 fixes issues found in the first release
candidate. Issues rectified include the primary constructor not
initialising structural type when auxiliary constructors are
present and parameters with default values not being distinguished.
In RC1, the compiler crashed with TypeError during SpecialiseTypes
– this has been fixed in RC2.
If no more problems are reported within the next two weeks, this
will become the final release. The final release is intended to be
fully binary compatible with version 2.8.0.
