Bug Fixes for Scala

Second Release Candidate of Scala 2.8.1

The second release candidate of Scala 2.8.1 is out now!


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.
