I’m am concidering purchasing this book on Scala, but cannot find what version it is written to.

Does this book describe Scala 2.8 or some older version?

– Thanks

I’d like to know as well. I’m currently on scala 2.9 just because and would like to know if what ever version it is makes a difference.

Unfortunately, this book is written for Scala 2.7.4 so is somewhat out of date. Some of the examples, particularly those using collections no longer compile under newer versions. It’s a shame because I’ve found this book to be a very approachable introduction to the language.

To the author: I think a second edition would be a good idea…

Cheers
