Downloading Scala

I wanted to have a play with Scala, so I installed the version that comes with Debian - 2.9.2.
However, this version doesn't work with Java 8 - apparently 2.12 is the version that will work with Java 8.
So I remove the Debian version, and head over to has the downloads, but:

b: No checksums
c: No GPG key

(It is possible to change the default HTTP download from to https.)

In 2016, downloads should be signed.

For what it's worth, here are the checksums for the file I downloaded.

MD5 dc95937bb2768caf5397195282e497e1  scala-2.12.0-M5.deb
SHA1 9bce1ad9fba780ef4da92496bcd06cdd799d616e  scala-2.12.0-M5.deb
