Announcing Scala.js 0.6.11

Jul 27, 2016

We are pleased to announce the release of Scala.js 0.6.11!

This release was mainly focused on optimizations. In particular, Longs have been dramatically improved, with up to 15x speedups (#1488). Some operations on BigIntegers benefit a lot from this, with up to 8x speedups.

We have also finally upgraded the version of the Google Closure Compiler that is used for fullOptJS, which brings speed improvements to the production applications of up to 2x, although mostly in the 10-15% range (#2490).

This release is mostly a bug-fix release. It also contains further adaptations to support the upcoming Scala 2.12.0-M5.

Announcing Scala.js 0.6.8

Mar 18, 2016

We are pleased to announce the release of Scala.js 0.6.8!

This release is mostly a bugfix release. The most important changes are:

  • Fixed #2243: -jsdeps.min.js not produced anymore after upgrading from 0.6.5 to 0.6.6 and 0.6.7
  • Upgrade the implementation of the standard library to Scala 2.11.8
  • #2238 Drop support for ES6 Strong Mode

This release also contains important although invisible changes to prepare for Scala 2.12.0-M4, which will start using default methods to encode traits. This required substantial changes in Scala.js. Although most of the work was done in earlier releases of Scala.js, 0.6.8 is the first version that should be able to support Scala 2.12.0-M4.
