Friday 31 May 2013
We are very happy to announce the RC2 release of Scala 2.10.2! If no serious blocking issues are found this will become the final 2.10.2 version.
The Scala team and contributors fixed 95 issues since 2.10.1!
In total, 164 RC1 pull requests and 7 RC2 pull requests were opened on GitHub, of which 140 were merged after having been tested and reviewed.
Known Issues
Before reporting a bug, please have a look at these known issues.
Scala IDE for Eclipse
The Scala IDE with Scala 2.10.2RC2 built right in is available through one of the following updatesites:
 for Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo)
 for Eclipse 3.8/4.2 (Juno) (Support for this version is experimental.)
Have a look at the getting started guide for more info.
New features in the 2.10 series
Since 2.10.2 is strictly a bugfix release, here’s an overview of the most prominent new features and improvements as introduced in 2.10.0:

Value Classes

A class may now extend
AnyVal
to make it behave like a struct type (restrictions apply). 
http://docs.scalalang.org/overviews/core/valueclasses.html


Implicit Classes

The implicit modifier now also applies to class definitions to reduce the boilerplate of implicit wrappers.

http://docs.scalalang.org/sips/pending/implicitclasses.html


String Interpolation

val what = "awesome"; println(s"string interpolation is ${what.toUpperCase}!")

http://docs.scalalang.org/overviews/core/stringinterpolation.html


Futures and Promises

Asynchronously get some JSON:
for (req < WS.url(restApiUrl).get()) yield (req.json \ "users").as[List[User]]
(uses play!)


Dynamic and applyDynamic

x.foo
becomesx.applyDynamic("foo")
ifx
’s type does not define afoo
, but is a subtype ofDynamic


Dependent method types:
def identity(x: AnyRef): x.type = x
// the return type says we return exactly what we got

New ByteCode emitter based on ASM

Can target JDK 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7

Emits 1.6 bytecode by default

Old 1.5 backend is deprecated


A new Pattern Matcher

rewritten from scratch to generate more robust code (no more exponential blowup!)

code generation and analyses are now independent (the latter can be turned off with
Xnopatmatanalysis
)


Scaladoc Improvements

Implicits (implicits flag)

Diagrams (diagrams flag, requires graphviz)

Groups (groups)


Modularized Language features

Get on top of the advanced Scala features used in your codebase by explicitly importing them.

http://docs.scalalang.org/sips/pending/modularizinglanguagefeatures.html


Parallel Collections are now configurable with custom thread pools

Akka Actors now part of the distribution

scala.actors have been deprecated and the akka implementation is now included in the distribution.

See the actors migration project for more information.


Performance Improvements

Faster inliner

Range#sum
is now O(1) 
Update of ForkJoin library

Fixes in immutable
TreeSet
/TreeMap

Improvements to PartialFunctions

 Addition of
???
andNotImplementedError
 Addition of
IsTraversableOnce
+IsTraversableLike
type classes for extension methods 
Deprecations and cleanup

Floating point and octal literal syntax deprecation

Removed scala.dbc

Experimental features

Scala Reflection

Macros
The API is subject to (possibly major) changes in the 2.11.x series, but don’t let that stop you from experimenting with them! A lot of developers have already come up with very cool applications for them. Some examples can be seen at http://scalamacros.org/news/2012/11/05/statusupdate.html.
A big thank you to all the contributors!
