After four rounds of release candidates, Scala 2.8.1.final has been
released [1], fixing a large number of bugs, and introducing some
enhancements, in particular in Scaladoc. A corresponding update to the
Scala IDE for Eclipse is now available from the usual place,

http://download.scala-ide.org/

Perhaps most importantly, the new toolchain release is completely
binary compatible with 2.8.0.final. As has been the rule, it’s still
necessary to update the Scala tooling for Eclipse to take advantage of
the new Scala compiler and library version. Thankfully, the
aforementioned binary compatibility and the continued availability of
the 2.8.0.final version of the SDT will make this process less painful
than it has been previously - you can either update to the 2.8.1.final
version immediately, or continue with 2.8.0.final and update to
2.8.1.final when it’s convenient for your project, whilst still being
able to take advantage of ongoing improvements in the Eclipse tooling.

This is the first time that this has been possible - enabling smoother
version transitions for users of the Scala tooling was one of the
primary goals of the Scala IDE for Eclipse becoming an independent
project, and it is very satisfying to see that this is working out in
practice. One of the project’s continuing goals is to ensure that
Eclipse users won’t again have to choose between sticking with a
particular stable release of the main Scala toolchain versus
benefiting from improvements in the Eclipse integration.

The version of the Scala tooling that is offered on the front page of
scala-ide.org by default has been bumped up to 2.8.1.final, all other
builds are available from the Eclipse update sites at
http://download.scala-ide.org/.

http://download.scala-ide.org/update-current-36 is Eclipse Helios with
2.8.1.final. The GSoC branch has been revved to 2.8.1.final as well.
