Have the best of both worlds. Construct elegant class hierarchies for maximum code reuse and extensibility, implement their behavior using higher-order functions. Or anything in-between.Learn More

Scala runs on the JVM, so Java and Scala stacks can be freely mixed for totally seamless integration.
So the type system doesn’t feel so static. Don’t work for the type system. Let the type system work for you!
Use data-parallel operations on collections, use actors for concurrency and distribution, or futures for asynchronous programming.
Combine the flexibility of Java-style interfaces with the power of classes. Think principled multiple-inheritance.
Think “switch” on steroids. Match against class hierarchies, sequences, and more.
Functions are first-class objects. Compose them with guaranteed type safety. Use them anywhere, pass them to anything.
We are very pleased to announce the availability of Scala 2.11.6!
Scala 2.11.6 is a bugfix release that is binary compatible with previous releases in the Scala 2.11 series. We would like to highlight the following changes:
In 2015, 2.11 minor releases will be released quarterly, or sooner if prompted by a serious issue.
The current release of Scala IDE includes Scala 2.11.6 is available on the download site (or as an update to version 4.0 of the plugin).
A large number of Scala projects have been released against Scala 2.11. Please refer to the list of libraries and frameworks available for Scala 2.11.
Due to a binary incompatibility in Scala 2.11.3, we recommend upgrading to Scala 2.11.6, which resolves the incompatibility, as well as another blocker issue that was discovered in the days after the 2.11.3 release.
We have analyzed the mistakes that lead to the breakage (human error), and are taking measures to prevent this from happening again. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank everyone who was involved in reporting and diagnosing these critical issues.
The release notes for the Scala 2.11 series, which also apply to the current minor release, are available in the release notes for Scala 2.11.1. They contain important information such as:
A big thank you to everyone who’s helped improve Scala by reporting bugs, improving our documentation, spreading kindness in mailing lists and other public fora, and submitting and reviewing pull requests! You are all magnificent.
