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!

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.
Scala 2.10.6 resolves a license incompatibility in scala.util.Sorting, but is otherwise identical to Scala 2.10.5. A total of three pending backports were merged.
We strongly encourage you to upgrade to the latest stable version of Scala 2.11.x, as the 2.10.x series is no longer actively maintained.
The current release of Scala IDE supports any 2.10.x release, and is available on the download site.
The release notes for the Scala 2.10 series, which also apply to the current minor release, are available in the release notes for Scala 2.10.4. They contain important information such as:
