** Replying to last week's announcement, Martin Jambon said:

 It looks a lot like camlmix :-) (<http://mjambon.com/camlmix/>).

2) OCaml 4.01.0+rc2
Archive: <https://sympa.inria.fr/sympa/arc/caml-list/2013-09/msg00047.html>
------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Damien Doligez announced:

The release of OCaml version 4.01.0 is imminent (next Thursday). We have
created a second release candidate for your testing pleasure. Please
download the sources, compile, install, and test your favourite
software with it. Then let me know whether it works for you.

We want to know about any show-stopping bugs, especially in the
compilation and installation phases.

This release candidate is available as source code at this
address: <http://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.01/>

Happy hacking,

-- Damien Doligez for the OCaml team.


Changes from the RC1:

Two bug fixes:
- PR#6158: Fatal error using GADTs
- PR#6163: Assert_failure using polymorphic variants in GADTs

A small change to ocamlbuild to work better with ocamlfind when using
a plug-in.

3) Uutf 0.9.3 & Xmlm 1.2.0
Archive: <https://sympa.inria.fr/sympa/arc/caml-list/2013-09/msg00053.html>
------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Daniel Bünzli announced:

I'd like to announce the release of Uutf 0.9.3 and Xmlm 1.2.0, see below
for
details. They should soon be available in opam.

Best,

Daniel


* Uutf 0.9.3

Bugfix release (thanks to Edwin Török for the report), see the release
notes
for details.

Home page: <http://erratique.ch/software/uutf>
Release notes: <https://github.com/dbuenzli/uutf/blob/master/CHANGES.md>


* Xmlm 1.2.0

Minor release that improves the odds of generating well-formed XML by
automatically translating illegal XML unicode characters present in output
`Data signals or attributes to the unicode replacement character U+FFFD
(thanks to David Sheets for insisting that something should be done about
that). It also deprecates the following two features:

1) The (non-standard) ability to decode more than one document with the
same
input abstraction.
See <http://erratique.ch/software/xmlm/doc/Xmlm#iseq>

2) The functorial interface that allows to specify alternative datatypes
for
strings and internal buffers.
See <http://erratique.ch/software/xmlm/doc/Xmlm#sto>

Please get in touch if 1) or 2) is important/affects you.

For other changes consult the release notes.
