Play 2.7.3 released!

We are pleased to announce the release of Play 2.7.3 with binaries for Scala 2.13.

This release contains a small breaking change of an internal API that unfortunately was not marked as such. Make sure you to read the details on the release notes.

The release notes are published in GitHub.




Hi Renato,

thanks for the announcement, but would it make sense to also update the Homepage and Blog to that matter?!


Hi @cbley,

Thanks for point out. I think the website was a mistake. It should have been published. I will check it.

The blog post is on purpose. We decided to not publish a new blog for each minor release. Although I would agree that Scala 2.13 is not a minor thing.

We want to reduce the overhead so we can have minor releases more often. The ideal world that we are aiming is to have a GitHub release followed by a quick announcement here pointing the community to the release page in GitHub.

Major releases like upcoming Play 2.8.0 will have a blog post.

I hope this clarifies.



@cbley, website is now deployed. My bad, I forgot to run a script. Again, bitten by procedures and overhead.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Thank you @renato for clearing that up! I’m a happy camper now…

It’s great to see Scala 2.13 support! Is the Scala 2.13 support in 2.7.3 considered production ready yet?

yes, of course!
