When seeking latest Scala 3.4.x Release Candidate, googling “scala releases” is no help.
While the top hit does show both 3.x and 2.x Releases, it doesn’t mention RCs. Fair enough. But going down the page, none of the other suggestions found the release candidate either. I feel that’s more problematic.
An underlying issue is the naming pattern: dotty = Scala 3, scala = Scala 2. That seems to be Google search’s rough model.
I don’t want to be overly superficial, but I do feel the pervasively retained use of the non-intuitive jargon “dotty” is holding back Scala 3 from being perceived, by more casual observers, as truly Scala.
I know there is logistical effort & disruption in a migration, but I hope to see a time when
https://github.com/scala/scala points at the current version of Scala . Are there any plans for this?
