Scala 2.7.3 RC2

Once again, a new release candidate for the next version of Scala
is available: Scala 2.7.3.RC2. This release candidate is almost
identical to the previous RC1, except for a couple of last-minute
bug fixes. We expect a final release very shortly. Scala 2.7.3 is
a maintenance release, while work progresses towards the upcoming
Scala 2.8.

You can download Scala 2.7.3.RC2, as usual, from our Download Page:
http://www.scala-lang.org/downloads. An updated Scala plugin for
Eclipse is also available (see http://www.scala-lang.org/node/94).

-------- WHAT IS NEW? -------------------------------------------------

There are no new features, as this is essentially a maintenance release;
however, many bug fixes and other improvements are available in this
version, including:

   * fixes for bugs #1460, #1467, #1461, #1464, #1454,
     #1382, #1374, #1402, #1379, #1375, #1241, #1263,
     #1235, #547, #1404, #1390, #1329, #1329, #1367,
     #1323, #1306, #1294, #1249, #508, #1206, #1267,
     #1289, #1271, #998, #1232, #1167, #1315, #820,
     #1083, #1257, #1264, #1358, #1514, #1624, #1620,
     #1541

   * fixed IntMap and LongMap.getOrElse
   * several optimisation fixes (dead-code elimination)
   * scaladoc fixes
   * deepToString fixes
   * fixed Queue.enqueue

Re: Scala 2.7.3 RC2

Hi Toni!

It is always a pleasure to get a newest, better version of Scala.

Just one note: Are you accumulating changes from RC1 too? Reading the list below, it seemed like a dejavu :) If yes, (sorry my memory fails me right now) IMHO it might be better to list just the RC2-RC1 diff.

What happened to #1070, which according to trac was fixed in an unreleased
version three months ago?
