This module provides various additions to the Scala 2.13 standard collections.
If you're using sbt, you can add the dependency as follows:
libraryDependencies += "org.scala-lang.modules" %% "scala-collection-contrib" % "0.2.2"
Here is the full Scaladoc.
New collection types
These collections are in the
MultiSet(both mutable and immutable)
SortedMultiSet(both mutable and immutable)
MultiDict(both mutable and immutable)
SortedMultiDict(both mutable and immutable)
The new operations are provided via an implicit enrichment. You need to add the following import to make them available:
The following operations are provided:
BitSet: <<, >>, ...
mutable.BitSet: <<=, >>=, ...
Iterable: foldSomeLeft, lazyFoldLeft, lazyFoldRight, splitBy, ...
Iterator: intersperse, foldSomeLeft, lazyFoldLeft, lazyFoldRight, splitBy, ...
Map: fullOuterJoin, leftOuterJoin, mergeByKey, mergeByKeyWith, rightOuterJoin, zipByKey, zipByKeyWith, ...
Seq: intersperse, replaced, splitBy, ...
This module is community-maintained. If you are interested in participating, please jump right in on issues and pull requests.

scala-collection-contrib's merge policy is liberal: we're happy to merge most things here, without too much review, so that people can try them out.
There is now (as of October 2020) the scala-library-next repo, which is where we decide what will actually be added to the next version of the Scala standard library. The standards for merging things there are much more conservative.
As with other Scala standard modules, build and release infrastructure is provided by the sbt-scala-module sbt plugin.
