Scala 2.9.1 RC4 Antonio Cunei 8/24/11 4:44 AM
We are now getting really close to the final release! The new
release candidate, Scala 2.9.1 RC4, is currently available for
testing. You can find it on our Download Page at:
http://www.scala-lang.org/downloads

This is a maintenance release: several bugs have been fixed, and
other improvements introduced. The new release is intended to be
fully binary compatible with the existing version 2.9.0.1.

Please help us testing this new release candidate, and let us know
of any issues you may detect, or of any binary incompatibility
issue that you may encounter. A description of the improvements in
Scala 2.9.1 is available below.


The Scala 2.9.1 distribution
==============================

This Release Candidate is made available for testing purposes only
and is not intended for production environments. We will wait 7
days in order to allow developers and testers to send us their
feedback, and if no critical faults are reported we will release
2.9.1 final on August 31st.
