Subject: [Caml-list] Changes in CVS
Since I do not now of any other way to inform CVS users, I post
on the main list.
This does not concern users of ocaml 3.02.
Problems will be solved before the next release.

After Xavier's recent changes to introduce dynamic loading of C code,
which already made the distribution rather instable, I just choose
this as the right time to change the behaviour of labels, along the
lines I proposed this spring: remove labels in the standard library,
and switch to (slightly laxist) label mode by default.

Programs that do not use labels will still compile fine, but programs
using them may have problems. In particular libraries using
non-optional labels need to be modified. Snapshots of lablGL and
lablgtk are available.
