Similar to Jason’s thread on Scala 2.12.13, this thread is about the upcoming Scala 2.13.4 release.
The target date for 2.13.4 (2.13.4 GitHub milestone) is October 29 .
The primary improvements and enhancements that it includes are:
- The Dotty Tasty Reader (https://github.com/scala/scala/pull/9109), which allows libraries compiled with Dotty to be consumed by 2.13.4+ (provided it utilises the subset of Scala 3 that Scalac 2.13 can understand)
- Enabling range position by default, which is required by SemanticDB (and therefore Scalafix and Metals) - now they be enabled by default
And much more! See:
Note that you can consume pre-releases of Scala using our nightly builds: https://github.com/scala/scala#nightly-builds.
