To migrate from 1.0.0-MF.

  • The rename of Cartesian to Semigroupal and EitherT.liftT to EitherT.liftF can be done automatically through scalafix we provide. See instructions here.
  • For FlatMap's >> and <<, use Apply's *> and <* instead.
  • Profunctor and Strong were moved to the cats.arrow package, Bifunctor, Invariant and Contravariant were moved to the cats root package.
  • SemigroupK[λ[α => Kleisli[F, α, α]]] and MonoidK[λ[α => Kleisli[F, α, α]]] are no longer implicitly available, Use Kleisli.endoSemigroupK and Kleisli.endoMonoidK to get them explicitly.
  • law testing for type classes in cats.kernel was made consistent with the law testing in cats.core. Check here for a guide on how to test cats type class instances.
  • NonEmptyList.concat that takes NonEmptlyList was deprecated, use NonEmptyList.concatNel instead.
  • Monoid no longer has a InvariantMonoidal instance, we discovered that it's not lawful. It has have an Invariant and a Semigroupal (new name for Cartesian) instance.
  • Foldable.iterateRight now takes an Iterable instead of Iterator, see #1973 for rationale.
  • Foldable for Set and Traversable for Map were moved to Alleycats, see #1831 for rationale.
  • cats.data.Kleisli#transform and cats.free.Coyoneda#transform were deprecated and replaced by mapK

Version 1.0.0-MF

2017 Aug 3

MF stands for milestone final. This is the last non-RC release before 1.0.0. The main purpose/focus of this release is to offer a relatively stable API to work with prior to 1.0.0. It can be deemed as a proposal for the final API we are going to maintain binary compatibility after 1.0. We will give community some time to validate it before we release 1.0.0-RC1.

To migrate from 0.9.0

We apologize for the number of breaking changes in this release. We are trying to include as many breaking changes as possible in this release before we lock down the API.

  • cats no longer publishes the all-inclusive bundle package "org.typelevel" % "cats", use cats-core, cats-free, or cats-law accordingly instead. If you need cats.free, use "org.typelevel" % "cats-free", if you need cats-laws use "org.typelevel" % "cats-laws", if neither, use "org.typelevel" % "cats-core".
  • cats.free.Inject is moved from cats-free to cats-core and renamed to cats.InjectK; cats.data.Prod is renamed to cats.data.Tuple2K; cats.data.Coproduct is renamed to cats.data.EitherK
  • All Unapply enabled methods, e.g. sequenceU, traverseU, etc. are removed. Unapply enabled syntax ops are also removed. Please use the partial unification SI-2712 fix instead. The easiest way might be this sbt-plugin.
  • FunctorFilter, MonadFilter, MonadReader, MonadState, MonadTrans, MonadWriter and TraverseFilter are no longer in cats, the functionalities they provided are inherited by the new cats-mtl project. Please check here for migration guide.
  • MonadCombine is no longer in cats. Use Alternative or Monad + MonoidK instead.
  • CartesianBuilder (i.e. |@|) syntax is deprecated, use the apply syntax on tuples instead. E.g. (x |@| y |@| z).map(...) should be replaced by (x, y, z).mapN(...). If you are getting "mapN not found" error message, it could be due to SI-2712, see the 3rd migration item above.
  • Apply syntax on tuple (e.g. (x, y, z).map3(...)) was moved from cats.syntax.tuple._ to cats.syntax.apply._ and renamed to mapN, contramapN and imapN respectively.
  • The creation methods (left, right, apply, pure, etc.) in EitherT were improved to take less type arguments.
  • Several cats-core type class instances for cats.kernel were moved from their companion objects to separate traits and thus require imports from cats.instances.xxx._ (or the recommended import cats.implicits._) now. See #1659 for more details.
  • Free.suspend is renamed to Free.defer for consistency.
  • traverse1_, intercalate1 and sequence1_ in Reducible were renamed to nonEmptyTraverse_, nonEmptyIntercalate and nonEmptySequence_ respectively.
  • foldLeftM is removed from Free, use foldM on Foldable instead, see #1117 for detail.
  • iteratorFoldM was removed from Foldable due to #1716
  • Split is removed, and the method split is moved to Arrow. Note that only under CommutativeArrow does it guarantee the non-interference between the effects. see #1567

If you feel adventurous you can try the experimental Scalafix rewrites. See all the available rewrites and the instructions here.

Version 0.9.0

2017 January 15

The biggest user-facing change in this release is to the behavior of the flatMap (and related methods) provided by EitherOps for the standard library's Either for Scala 2.10 and 2.11. These methods now match the behavior of the flatMap on Either in Scala 2.12 in that they don't require the left-hand side types to match.

For example, the following would previously compile on 2.12, but not 2.10 or 2.11:

import cats.syntax.either._

sealed abstract class AppError
case object Error1 extends AppError
case object Error2 extends AppError

val either1: Either[Error1.type, String] = Right("hi")
val either2: Either[Error2.type, String] = Right("bye")

val result: Either[AppError, String] = for {
  v1 <- either1
  v2 <- either2
} yield v1 + v2

This code now works equivalently on all supported Scala versions.

Changes:

  • #1424: NonEmptyList and NonEmptyVector are now covariant
  • #1506: flatMap provided by Either syntax matches 2.12's Either#flatMap
  • #1466: Improved stack safety for StateT
  • #1510: catchNonFatal for Future is now asynchronous

Bug fixes:

  • #1465 and #1507: Stack safety law for Monad#tailRecM is less eager and doesn't throw exceptions

New type class instances:

  • #1475: Reducible instances for Eval and Id
  • #1484: Show instance for Symbol

Other additions:

  • #1446: Cofree comonad
  • #1520 and #1522: intercalate for Foldable (and intercalate1 for Reducible)
  • #1454: asLeft and asRight syntax methods for creating Either values
  • #1468: tupleLeft and tupleRight for Functor
  • #1500: putLeft, putRight, mergeLeft, and mergeRight methods for Ior
  • #1495: show string interpolator
  • #1448: Validated#findValid (like orElse but error accumulating)
  • #1455: reverse for NonEmptyList
  • #1517: zipWithIndex for NonEmptyList
  • #1512 and #1514: filterNot for NonEmptyList and NonEmptyVector
  • #1480: FunctionK#and
  • #1481: EitherT.cond

Miscellaneous improvements (syntax, documentation, tests):

  • #1513: Improved documentation for Functor, Applicative, and Traverse
  • #1440: Improved type class documentation
  • #1442: Improved documentation for Semigroup and Monoid
  • #1479: Some instance traits are now package-private
  • #1445: Workaround for Tut issue
  • #1477: Use new kind-projector syntax for polymorphic lambdas
  • #1483: Binary compatibility checking is now part of the build for cats-kernel
  • #1469: More consistent instance names
  • #1496: Simpler creation of some SemigroupK and MonoidK instances
  • #1490: Avoid some duplication in build via sbt-travisci
  • #1497: Site list clean-up

And version updates:

  • #1499: 2.12 version is now 2.12.1
  • #1509: Scala.js version is 0.6.14

As always thanks to everyone who filed issues, participated in the Cats Gitter channel, submitted code, or helped review pull requests.

Version 0.7.2

2016 September 1

Version 0.7.2 is a patch release that was released to fix a major bug (#1346) that appeared in 0.7.0. It also contains several other improvements.

It should be safe to upgrade from 0.7.0 to 0.7.2 -- there are no major API changes between these releases.

Changes

Fixes:

  • #1347: fixes broken Monoid[Map[K, V]].combineAll implementation.
  • #1304: fix CoflatMap documentation.
  • #1322: fix SBT commands (release, validate, etc.).
  • #1311: rename some implicit instances for consistency.

Additions:

  • #1319: add missing BigDecimal instances.
  • #1324: add missing function and BitSet instances.

Note that 0.7.2 was preceeded by a botched 0.7.1. release. Please avoid using this version of Cats -- it has major incompatibilities with 0.7.0 and is not documented here.

Version 0.7.0

2016 August 21

Version 0.7.0 is the seventh Cats release, and includes several major rearrangements and changes to names.

Migration notes

If you're updating from Cats 0.6.0, it's likely that you'll need to make extensive (but mostly mechanical) changes. The following list includes some of the changes that are likely to be necessary for most projects; see the complete list of changes below for more detail.

  • All references to cats.std will need to be changed to cats.instances (#1140). If you're using cats.std.all or the other cats.std objects with wildcard imports, this is likely to be the only change you need to make. If you are importing or referring to instance definitions by name, you'll need to be aware that the naming convention has changed (see #1066, #1068, #1110, and #1122).
  • NonEmptyList and NonEmptyVector are no longer type aliases for OneAnd, so any code using OneAnd to construct or pattern match on these types will need to be changed to use NonEmptyList or NonEmptyVector directly. There are also some API changes; for example, unwrap calls will need to be replaced by toList or toVector, and NonEmptyList(1, 2, 3) is now NonEmptyList.of(1, 2, 3).
  • pureEval has been removed from Applicative (#1234), and has not been replaced, so if you are relying on it for laziness or effect capturing (which wasn't enforced or guaranteed), you'll need to find another approach.
  • All references to NaturalTransformation will need to be replaced by either FunctionK or ~>.
  • The FlatMap type class now has a tailRecM method that is designed to support stack-safe recursive monadic binding. If your monad's flatMap is stack safe, you can implement a stack-safe tailRecM by calling Monad#defaultTailRecM. The stack safety of tailRecM is not enforced, but if your implementation is stack safe, you should also provide an instance of the RecursiveTailRecM marker type class.
  • If you are interpreting a free algebra into a context F with foldMap, you'll now need F to have an instance of the RecursiveTailRecM marker type class (in addition to the Monad instance).

If you run into any issues while updating, please get in touch on Gitter.

Changes

This release includes a fix for a bug in 0.6.0 (also fixed in 0.6.1):

  • #1062: Order instances for tuples are now lexicographic (instead of only comparing first elements)

Version 0.4.1

2016 February 4

Version 0.4.1 is a patch release in the 0.4 series and is binary compatible with version 0.4.0.

This patch fixes bugs with the dropWhile methods on Streaming and StreamingT.

This release corrects outdated build/POM metadata, which should fix API doc URLS.

Bug fixes:

  • #856: Fix Streaming and StreamingT dropWhile functions

Build/publishing changes:

  • #852 Update build with org change

Documentation and site improvements:

  • #859 Add Contravariant documentation page
  • #861 Docs: Revive useful links section. Update URLs

Version 0.4.0

2016 February 1

Version 0.4.0 is the fourth release of the Cats library, and the first release published under the org.typelevel group from the Typelevel organization on GitHub (previous releases had been published to org.spire-math from non/cats). This means that users will need to change the groupId for their Cats dependencies when updating. If you have a line like this in your SBT build configuration, for example:

libraryDependencies += "org.spire-math" %% "cats" % "0.3.0"

You will need to change it to the following:

libraryDependencies += "org.typelevel" %% "cats" % "0.4.0"

This release no longer includes cats-state or cats-free artifacts, since the cats.state and cats.free packages have been moved into cats-core.

If you've checked out the GitHub repository locally, it would be a good idea to update your remote to point to the new organization, which will typically look like this (note that you should confirm that origin is the appropriate remote name):

git remote set-url origin git@github.com:typelevel/cats.git

This release includes a large number of breaking changes, including most prominently the introduction of a new Cartesian type class that is a supertype of Monad (and many other types). If you use the |@| syntax that had previously been provided by Apply, you'll need to change your imports from cats.syntax.apply._ to cats.syntax.cartesian._. For example:

scala> import cats.Eval, cats.syntax.cartesian._
import cats.Eval
import cats.syntax.cartesian._

scala> (Eval.now("v") |@| Eval.now(0.4)).tupled
res0: cats.Eval[(String, Double)] = cats.Eval$$anon$5@104f8bbd

Other changes in this release are described below.

This version includes API changes:

  • #555: |@| syntax is now provided by cats.syntax.cartesian
  • #835: State and StateT are now in the cats.data package

Version 0.2.0

2015 August 31

Version 0.2.0 is the second release of the Cats library.

The most exciting feature of this release is Scala.js support, which comes courtesy of much hard work by the Scala.js community (especially Alistair Johnson). The SBT build configuration and project layout were updated to support building for both the JVM and JS platforms.

Since the 0.1.2 release there was wide agreement that the split between cats-core and cats-std was awkward. The two projects have been combined into cats-core, meaning that type class instances for common types like List are now available in cats-core.

There was also a concerted effort to improve and add documentation to the project. Many people helped find typos, broken links, and places where the docs could be improved. In particular, the following tutorials were added or overhauled:

  • Applicative
  • Const
  • Foldable
  • Free
  • FreeApplicative
  • Kleisli
  • Monad
  • Monoid
  • Semigroup
  • SemigroupK
  • Traverse
  • Validated
  • Xor

Several new type classes and data types were introduced:

  • Choice[F[_, _]]
  • Group[A]
  • MonadReader[F[_, _], R]
  • Streaming[A] and StreamingT[F[_], A]
  • Prod[F[_], G[_], A] and Func[F[_], A, B]

Syntax tests were added to ensure that existing syntax worked, and there has been some movement to enrich existing types with syntax to make converting them to Cats types easier.

The previous Fold[A] type, which was used to support lazy folds, has been replaced with Eval[A]. This type supports both strict and lazy evaluation, supports lazy map and flatMap, and is trampolined for stack safety. The definition of Foldable#foldRight has been updated to something much more idiomatic and easier to reason about. The goal is to support laziness in Cats via the Eval[A] type wherever possible.

In addition to these specific changes there were numerous small bug fixes, additions, improvements, and updates. Thanks to everyone who filed issues, participated in the Cats Gitter channel, submitted code, or helped review pull requests.

Version 0.1.2

2015 July 17

(Due to problems with publishing 0.1.0 and 0.1.1 are incomplete.)

Version 0.1.2 is the first non-snapshot version of the Cats library! It is intended to assist the creation of dependent libraries and to be an early look at Cats' design.

Much of the library is quite mature, but there are no source- or binary-compatibility guarantees at this time. The overarching design of the library is still somewhat in flux, although mostly we expect there will be new type classes, instances, and syntax. Some package and module boundaries may also shift.
