Proposals to drop Scala 2.11 support (on main branch, at least) from scala-xml and scala-parser-combinators: https://github.com/scala/scala-xml/issues/646, https://github.com/scala/scala-parser-combinators/pull/504
So many cool news in Scala recently:
Scala 3.2.2 was just released and this time I'm in the contributor list . I wonder if a CSS change to scaladoc is enough for me to add "Compiler Engineer" to my CV .
Scala Native 0.4.10 and Scala JS 1.13.0 were also released recently, finally dropping 2.11 support.
Having both projects doing this at the same time is awesome! No weird cross-building problems for those who want to update (I was a bit scared that some libraries would rather drop Scala Native instead of 2.11) and it's a nice incentive for libraries to finally remove 2.11 support for good!
A timeline for reference:
- 2.11.0 was released on Apr 17, 2014.
- 2.12.0 was released on Nov 3, 2016 (6 years ago!).
- 2.11.12 (the last 2.11 version) was released on Nov 9, 2017 (5 years ago).
- Spark added 2.12 support on 2.4.0, which was released in Oct 29, 2018.
- Scala native added 2.12 support in 0.4.0, released in Jan 19, 2021.
So it seems more than enough time for most applications to upgrade.
After 6 years I finally messed up this server in a way that I don't seem to be able to recover - partly my fault, but also partly due the booting logic that Scaleway used on this (now deprecated) instance type.
I was already constantly running out of memory anyway, so this might be a good time to upgrade. Still, just a heads up that federation with this instance might be a bit bumpy during the next week.
If you're comfortable installing your own server software, you might like to know about microblog.pub. It's a free open source single-user Fediverse server which is very lightweight and has a minimalist interface.
You can find out more info on its documentation site at:
There's also an official account you can follow for updates:
As it's part of the Fediverse, microblog.pub accounts can be followed from Mastodon etc.
