Scala 2.12.6 coming soon


#1

Because of https://github.com/scala/scala-dev/issues/480 , we will build and release Scala 2.12.6 soon. The target date on the 2.12.6 milestone on GitHub is now April 9. (As always, these dates are targets and are not set in stone.)

Nearly all issues and pull requests that were targeted for 2.12.6 are now pushed forward to 2.12.7. (We’ll be extremely conservative about accepting anything for 2.12.6.)

2.12.7 is tentatively planned for August 2018.

Getting ready for 2.12.5
#2

PR merging for 2.12.6 is complete and the community build is green.

The release candidate version is 2.12.6-bin-84112e8

We need a bit more time to test it properly on JDK 10; if that goes well, we’ll release next week.

The list of merged PRs for 2.12.6 is here: https://github.com/scala/scala/pulls?q=is%3Aclosed+milestone%3A2.12.6

(The list may seem surprisingly long; it’s because most of them have to do with our build/test/publish infra.)

Is there a new ETA?

Sorry, we’re a few days behind. Shooting for next week. I was hoping to get it out before our engineering off site last week, but failed, and now I’m at another meeting for a few days.
