Scala 2.8.2 final
Created by admin on 2011-09-27. Updated: 2011-09-27, 14:45
The Scala Team is happy to announce the next maintenance release in our old 2.8.x series: Scala 2.8.2 final is available from our Download Page. This version is provided as a binary-compatible update to our previous Scala 2.8.x series; we recommend our most recent stable version (currently Scala 2.9.1) for all new developments.

Note: at this time we are phasing out our old sbaz package manager in order to move to newer tools like Maven, sbt, etc. Sbaz is currently deprecated, and it will no longer be available as part of the Scala distribution in the future.
