Scala 2.11.12 is a maintenance release to allow running Scala 2.11 tooling on Java 9. Five pending backports were merged.

This release addresses (#6108) a privilege escalation vulnerability that was identified in the Scala compilation daemon CVE-2017-15288.

We strongly encourage you to upgrade to the latest stable version of Scala 2.12.x, as the 2.11.x series is no longer actively maintained.

There is a known bug on Java 9 involving the repl: the workaround is to launch it as scala -nobootcp.

More general information about the Scala 2.11 series is available in the release notes for Scala 2.11.1.
