This thread is for updates and discussions about the upcoming Scala 2.13.8 release.
2.13.7 contained 6+ months of accumulated changes, so it’s not surprising that a few regressions have turned up, most notably:
- REPL broken on M1 Macs: https://github.com/scala/bug/issues/12491
But also some other issues; see the PRs on the 2.13.8 milestone for details:
So we propose to publish a 2.13.8 release candidate by December 17, followed by a final 2.13.8 release no earlier than January 5. (Depending on how things go these dates might have to change, but even if they do, we’ll be sure not to intrude on the holidays.)
If you’re aware of anything you think ought to be considered a blocker for this release, please let us know, either by commenting on the appropriate ticket or PR, or by replying on this thread.
