There is no such thing currently (greatly needed I'm afraid).
There are however two sources of information:

* the OCaml 2.99 user manual. There is a section in the tutorial, and
  explanations are added at related places in the reference manual.

* Objective Label related material. The new features are taken from
  it, but slightly modified to make them more robust.


Il n'y a pas de document expliquant uniquement les nouvelles
fonctionnalites d'ocaml 3, mais il y a des informations dans le manuel
de l'utilisateur d'ocaml 2.99, et on peut aussi lire les informations
concernant olabl a` l'adresse ci-dessus (meme si elles ne s'appliquent
pas totalement).
