After backporting a few additional fixes, we are releasing a new
release candidate for the next maintenance release in our old 2.8.x
series: Scala 2.8.2 RC1 is now available from our Download Page,

This release addresses some issues present in Scala 2.8.1, and
includes the changes needed to make it compatible with the new
Scala IDE for Eclipse. This maintenance release is intended to
be fully binary compatible with the existing version 2.8.1.

Please help us with the testing of this release candidate, and
let us know of any binary incompatibility issues, or other
problems. The list of improvements in Scala 2.8.2 RC2 is
available below.

This Release Candidate is made available for testing purposes

wait at least two weeks before issuing a final release, in order
to allow developers and testers to send us their feedback.

Sbaz is currently deprecated, and it will no longer be available
as part of the Scala distribution in the future.
