Sadly, Apress had very little interest in an updated version of Beginning Scala (which is based on 2.7.3).  Sigh.
 

Thanks,

I hope to release one before the end of the year, but likely sometime next year called "Scala In Depth" that will cover 2.8 related features.   The first part of the book is under review and should MEAP shortly.  (Manning Early Access program).

I'm reading the Safari version of "Programming Scala" right now.  It
lists the differences between 2.7 and 2.8 in a few places.  Being new to
scala, I'm not sure how exhaustive its coverage of 2.8 features is.

We did the best that we could at the time to cover 2.8 in "Programming Scala", but there are still a number of areas that changed since then, like the internals of the collections library.

I think there's a "Scala in Action" in the works from Manning.
