XGBoost vs Scala 2.12.x


Is there any version of xgboost compiled with scala 2.12.x ?


It’s compiled with 2.11


Thanks @CodingCat
Do you know if their is any chance to have a version compiled with 2.12 for the next release where the spark version seems to be upgraded from 2.3.2 to 2.4.3 which itself used use 2.12 or if their is any possibility to compile it locally with 2.12 ?


2.4.3 still by default compiled with 2.11, and we do not have a plan to support 2.12 for the next release which is coming in days

For the next next one, yes, we will support 2.12


Thanks for your answer

  • You mean that, we could expect to have xgboost supporting scala 2.12 in two releases (~ 0.9.x or 1.0)?
  • Otherwise, since 2.4.x spark supports both 2.11 and 2.12
