We—the Akka committers—are pleased to be able to announce the availability of Akka 2.3.8. This is the eighth maintenance release of the 2.3 branch. This release contains a few improvements and one new feature:
Akka 2.3.8 is released for Scala 2.10.4 and 2.11.4. This release is backwards binary compatible with all previous 2.3.x versions which means that the new JARs are a drop-in replacement for the old one (but not the other way around) as long as your build does not enable the inliner (Scala-only restriction). Always make sure to use at least the latest version required by any of your project’s dependencies.
