A new release candidate is available for the next maintenance
release in our old 2.8.x series: Scala 2.8.2 RC3 is available from
our Download Page at:

This release candidate includes a few additional fixes and
improvements to the presentation compiler with respect to RC2. We
expect a final release to be available shortly. 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 RC3 is
available below.

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